In this article,we had described what does being J-boarded in a greek organization mean?.We’ve got the answer to your question about being J-boarded in a greek organization. Being called before a Judicial Board is nerve-wracking and stressful for anyone. It might not be clear to you why you have been called before the board or how serious the situation is. Do not worry, we have everything you need to know about this topic right here.
When someone is J-boarded, they are being held accountable by their organization and must appear before a disciplinary panel. It may seem intimidating at first, but knowing more about it beforehand can help you prepare for your hearing. To ensure that no one feels blindsided during this experience, we want to make sure that everyone has access to accurate information.
What is the J-Board & Why are They Hearing My Case?
The Judicial Board (J-Board) hears cases concerning disciplinary violations that may result in probation, suspension, or expulsion. The members of the board are not part of any fraternity or sorority and volunteer to serve on this committee. Anyone found responsible for a chapter judicial policy violation could drop below an average chapter GPA – which could lead to chapter probation – and thus would be required to appear before a J-Board hearing. This year’s J-Board has nine voting members: two alphas from IFC fraternities, two melanos from NPC sororities, three independents from panhellenic organizations, one off campus fraternity member from Sigma Alpha Mu national organization, and one off campus sorority member.
Who is on the J-Board?
The Board consists of ten voting members (five men & five women) who are selected based on volunteerism, leadership, character, interpersonal skills, etc. The position involves working with individuals from all types of organizations both inside and outside of their own houses/organizations. New members must be voted in by current J-Board members mid semester to join the board for the remainder of the academic year. This also means that new positions will open up every spring semester! If you or someone you know might be interested in joining next fall – please reach out to either USAC Judicial Board Liaison Josh Dolgin ([email protected]) or myself ([email protected]). Applications will be available in the USAC office by mid-February.
What is a trial like? Why does it not happen until so late in the semester? Where do I go to submit my case?
There is a significant amount of time spent by all parties involved in the process to ensure that we uphold our values and remain in compliance with UC Berkeley’s student conduct policy. All cases presented before the J-Board are confidential. However, the public documents are linked below.
The J-board process is the process where you are expelled from a fraternity or sorority for breaking the rules. Usually, this doesn’t happen too often, but if it’s not handled properly, it can result in expulsion from school. Let us know if this has happened to you. Our team has helped hundreds of students get back into their fraternities and sororities by providing them with advice on how to handle themselves during this difficult time. We have a team made up of fraternity and sorority members who have been kicked out of an organization for disciplinary reasons and know how to regain admission. Together, we will come up with a plan that works well for everyone involved after consulting with your chapter president or executive board. Our first step is always to admit fault and apologize sincerely. Depending on the type of infraction (drug use, theft, etc. ), we will go from there. As these kinds of problems tend to return down the road, you may need us more than once as you progress through college – but our goal will always be to help you fix any issues before they escalate.
