Certain members of the ASB are representatives to the University Standing Committees. The University Standing Committees are appointed to bring together faculty, staff, alumni, students, and administrators for the purpose of collecting, exchanging, and weighing information and opinions and submitting to the Chancellor and Provost recommendations for changes that the committees deem necessary for the general good of the University. Each committee has the responsibility of continually reviewing practices and policies in its area of concern, as well as performing specifically designated duties. The University Standing Committees are advisory to the Chancellor and Provost and, as such, perform a significant role in the governance of the University. These members of ASB are thus essential advocates for the student body to the University Administration. 


Academic Discipline

The duties and responsibilities of the Academic Discipline Committee are set forth in the University's M Book, Handbook of Standards and Activities. The committee conducts formal hearings on charges of academic dishonesty when a student who has had a penalty imposed against him or her for alleged academic dishonesty appeals that decision. The committee's decision is final unless the penalty assessed involves suspension or dismissal from the University, in which event that part of the penalty is subject to the approval of the Chancellor.
