The College Judicial Committee, comprised of students, faculty, and staff, reviews behavioral grievances brought by a member of the College community against a student and renders a recommendation of action to the Dean of Student Affairs.
Detailed information about the College Code of Student Conduct may be found in the LIFELINE Student Handbook.
