What is the Peer Conduct Council?

The Peer Conduct Council goal is to foster a stronger community through peer-to-peer education, which encompasses but is not limited to, conduct hearings, presentations, and co-facilitating restorative practices. The Peer Conduct Council is comprised of undergraduate student leaders dedicated to educating their fellow peers about living in community.
