Consultation Roles in Relation to the University Honor Committee
and the Sexual Assault Hearing Board

When students are charged with honor violations that are brought before the University Honor Committee, they will sometimes choose to provide a "psychological defense" as a means of identifying the mitigating psychological factors that led to their breach of the honor code. In these instances students may choose their own mental health professional to provide psychological/psychiatric assessment and subsequent representation to the honor committee. Students may elect to utilize CAPS professionals for this function.

Similarly, when a student is brought up before the Sexual Assault Hearing Board a CAPS professional is assigned to provide supportive counseling and advocacy to the student during the formal hearing process. The appointed CAPS support professional will also assist in arranging follow-up counseling and psychotherapy services if such is indicated following the outcome of the sexual assault hearing.
