Residential Life - Conduct Review System

The Conduct Review System is a developmental and accountability system designed to emphasize the citizenship responsibilities and privileges of all members of the campus community. This allows Manchester to solve problems and conflicts within the campus community, and to advance the best interests of the University community.

Major Components of the Conduct Review System:

Administrative Hearing

Hall Directors have been assigned responsibility for exercising powers of the Conduct Review System in matters occurring within residence halls. Actions by Hall Directors are reviewed and approved by the Director of Residential Life.

Conduct Review Board

The Conduct Review Board is composed of ten students. For purposes of hearing cases, the Conduct Review Board is divided into two sections, each comprised of five students. Actions by the Conduct Review Board are reviewed and approved by the Director of Residential Life.

University Hearing Panel

The University Hearing Panel is composed of three full-time members of the University staff and faculty and the Director of Residential Life. They will hear cases when the Conduct Review Board is inactive* or when the content of the behavior is such that it is prudent for faculty/staff to hear the complaint. Panels are appointed to hear a specific case by the Director of Residential Life or the Dean of Student Experience. Actions by the University Hearing Panel are reviewed and approved by the Dean of Student Experience.

*The Conduct System Coordinator will determine when the Conduct Review Board is inactive.

Director of Residence Life/Dean of Student Experience Hearing

Often times in cases that are more serious in nature, the Dean of Student Experience or Director of Residential Life will meet with students involved and adjudicate the case. Actions by Director of Residential Life are reviewed and approved by the Dean of Student Experience. Actions by the Dean of Student Experience are reviewed and approved by the Vice President for Academic Resources.
