I’m a campus judicial officer, does this undermine my system?

Absolutely not. As former chief judicial officers we understand how important it is that the process allows your board to obtain the most honest information possible. We also know that the requirements of the position mean that while you offer support to the student and connect him or her to your appropriate campus resources, your primary obligation is to your institution and that there are certain things you cannot and should not discuss with students. We use motivational interviewing and other techniques to encourage students to maximize their self-reflection and thus be able to respond with complete and relevant information. We specialize in those cases for which engaging an attorney would be excessive or when we can assist a student and his/her attorney in addressing the legal aspect of the consequences for her actions without hurting her in this one. Please refer to our section for judicial officers (LINK) to learn more about what we do and what we can offer you.
