Hearing Board

The Hearing Board serves as an objective hearing body for both academic and nonacademic cases.  Members of the Board - faculty, staff, and students - are dedicated to educating and hearing students, while also balancing the needs of the Babson community.  

Students join the Board to enhance their critical thinking, effective listening, and communication skills. Beyond hearing cases, the student members of the Board also sit on the following subcommittees. 

This group will look to educate the community on the importance of academic integrity and develop strategies to address/breakdown a culture of cheating. 

This group will create ways to support and empower students to proactively and productively manage conflict and difficult conversations (i.e. around identity, racism, group project conflicts).

Collaborate with all subcommittees to promote events, policies, procedures, and values.  This group will explore various communication outlets to most effectively and consistently reach and educate different parts of the Babson community.  

Board members will work together to create educational trainings and assist with planning topics for bi-weekly board meetings. 

For cases in which a behavior does not lead to a formal charge, but we believe follow-up would be beneficial, we will look to this group to meet 1:1 with students.
