Area Government serves as a voice for students in the residence hall community. Your area government serves as a link between the residential life staff and the residents living in your building. By being involved in your area government, you can be a part of creating and changing policies, building leadership skills, planning programs for the area, attending student conferences, and being part of other campus-wide activities and events.
The Housing and Residential Life Judicial Board is a peer review board composed of residence hall students. Residents who have allegedly violated a Housing and Residential Life policy may choose to have their alleged violation heard by the Judicial Board. The goals of the Judicial Board are to redirect negative behavior of students into acceptable behaviors, serve as educators to peers, and protect the rights of all students within the residence hall system. Students who serve on the Judicial Board gain invaluable experience as educators and leaders.
