The Office of Student Conflict Resolution will be seeking students to serve as volunteers on the University Tribunal (UT) in February 2013.
UT members are trained in procedural fairness and natural justice, and they make an important contribution to the life of students at York by upholding the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities (CSRR). Most student conflicts at York are resolved through informal processes, or by Local Adjudicators. The University Tribunal is only called for serious cases that must be dealt with through a more formal judicial process.
New members are appointed by the Vice Provst of Students on the advice of a selection committee made up of current University Tribunal members. The appointment is for a two year term and is renewable once. Panels – each consisting of three people – will be formed; they will sit on a pre-determined, rotating basis that fits the schedule of the members.
Benefits in becoming a University Tribunal Member include:
- Valuable training: you will learn mediation skills that are applicable beyond your involvement with the Tribunal.
- Professional development sessions throughout the academic year
- Help build a community which encourages appropriate conduct: stand up for civility and respectful interaction free from violence and intimidation
