Student Life Conduct Liaisons

A Student Rights and Responsibilities Liaison is a University of Denver professional staff member or current student who serves as a Liaison for a student who is a complainant or respondent to a violation of the Honor Code and will be appearing before a Conduct Review Board. The Student Rights and Responsibilities Liaison will maintain an objective position in advising the student. The Liaison is not an advocate who sides with either principal party involved in the disciplinary procedure, but rather a Liaison helps guide the student in the procedures of the processes.

If you have been documented for allegedly violating policy or if you are bringing charges against another DU student, you have the right to obtain a Liaison for all hearings brought to a Conduct Review Board. You are not required to seek the help of a Liaison; however, going through a Conduct Review Board hearing may be overwhelming and intimidating. Therefore, the Student Life Division recommends that, if you are facing a Conduct Review Board, you should consider working with a Liaison. Student Life provides a ready resource of trained Rights and Responsibilities Liaisons willing to assist you.
