Residential Education & Services (RES) is looking for responsible, dedicated rising sophomores of integrity that would like to sit on our Conduct or Peer Review Boards.
The boards are designed to hear student conduct cases at Oxford College. The boards provide the opportunity for student leaders to communicate with other students about their conduct and to promote a positive living and learning community. During a hearing, a student member's role is to determine, by a preponderance of the evidence, whether or not the accused student violated the Oxford College Code of Conduct. Board members also serve in a proactive role in educating the community about the Code of Conduct and its procedures.
We are looking for qualities such as open-mindedness and objectivity. Board members are expected to judge those accused based on the facts of the case. All parties involved in the conduct process are to be treated with courtesy and respect. Your interactions and decisions should always reflect the integrity that is required of such an important role in our community.
Members must be able to keep information confidential. In simplest terms, information should not be discussed related to a case outside of the official proceedings of the hearing.
All members must attend board hearings every Tuesday evening from 6:00pm-8:30pm. Members are expected to actively participate in at least 1 educational activity per semester and maintain a 2.5 GPA. Members are expected to uphold the Code of Conduct even if they disagree with it.
If you are interested in becoming a member of our Conduct or Peer Review Board, please complete the application at this link. You may contact our Student Conduct Coordinator, Natalie Raymond (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.

To sustain an environment conducive to learning, promote a climate of mutual respect, foster open dialogue that promotes learning and understanding, promote individual well-being and personal development, and encourage the application of ethical decision-making in the daily life of undergraduates.
Oxford College of Emory University is an institution dedicated to providing educational opportunities, transmitting and advancing knowledge, and providing a range of services to both students and the general community. The College endeavors to foster in each student a love of learning, commitment to fair and honorable conduct, and respect for the safety and welfare of others. It also strives to protect the community from the influence of those who do not embody these values in their conduct, and to protect the integrity of the College and its property for the benefit of all. For this purpose, and in accordance with the bylaws of the College, the President of Emory University has defined the interests of the College community to be promoted and protected and has delegated to the Dean of Oxford College and Dean for Campus Life the responsibility of implementing such a system via the Oxford College Code of Conduct, hereafter referred to as the Code.
The activities of students beyond the classroom influence the educational process and learning environment, just as the intellectual atmosphere of the campus contributes to students' personal growth and development. Many forms of nonacademic conduct, as well as all academic affairs, are therefore areas of proper concern and regulation by the College community. The guiding principle of College regulation of undergraduate conduct is the responsible exercise of freedoms and privileges. Members of the College community are granted the greatest possible degree of self-determination correlative to acceptance of the full responsibility for their conduct and the consequences of their actions.
