There is no set number of members for the UAB. All faculty, professional staff, and students are eligible for UAB membership consideration. UAB members are appointed by the President each spring term. Appointments begin the subsequent fall term. Temporary members may be appointed during the summer term or at such other times as are necessary.
SCCS will coordinate annual, spring recruitment with the University Senate, OA Council, and the ASUO. In addition to recommendations made directly to the President from shared governance bodies, SCCS will facilitate an application process. Successful applicants will be recommended to the President for appointment consideration.
Before participating in an Appeal Review, members complete an orientation and training on the student conduct program, procedural due process, and administrative review.
An Appeal Review consists of three UAB members, and includes at least one faculty person and one student. The three members are drawn in rotation from the current pool of faculty, professional staff, and students. A chair will be selected amongst the three members for each Appeal Review.
a) Chair: Elected from the committee membership for each Appeal Review. (There is no chair for the larger committee.)
b) Convener: Director of Student Conduct and Community Standards
c) Staff: Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards
Election Schedule for Chair

Length of Term
There are no set term lengths for any committee members.
Membership may be renewed indefinitely, permitted the member completes bi-annual training and participated in at least one appeal during their most recent term.
Frequency of Meetings
UAB members meet only when assigned to a specific Appeal Review. Each Appeal Review committee typically meets once.
