Peer Conduct Council

The Peer Conduct Council's goal is to foster a stronger community through an engaging and educational student conduct process.

What is the Peer Conduct Council?

The Council is comprised of undergraduate student leaders dedicated to educating students and promoting a socially just community.  PCC is responsible for hearing cases that involve violations that have an impact on the larger community in which students live, including, but not limited to, quiet hours, vandalism, disorderly conduct, and low level alcohol and illegal drug violations.  


Peer Conduct Council members will experience a four-component leadership formation program.  Designed to combine critical thinking skills with opportunities to participate in leadership programs. The Peer Conduct Council is an opportunity to discover personal leadership styles while helping other students make responsible decisions.

Council member will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of personalized leadership programs including workshops, retreats and activities.  Peer Conduct Council members will have opportunities to develop leadership skills from professionals across the division of Student Life (Dean of Students, NSFP, SIL, Residential Experience, Campus Housing and MECS).  Members will be exposed to leadership skills that include, but are not limited to, peer education, motivational interviewing, conflict resolution, group facilitation, programming, critical and analytical thinking, communication and team decision making.
