Student Conduct Internship, Judicial Affairs

Judicial Affairs is the primary administrator of the Code of Student Responsibilities. The Code is a body of principles consisting of the University’s expectations of its students, provisions for sanctioning rule violations, and due process mechanisms. It presupposes that students will obey all local, state and federal laws; comply with all University policies and procedures; and respect the rights of all individuals. Judicial Affairs adjudicates alleged Code violations and strives to achieve results that reflect the best interests of the University, its community, and the student(s) involved while emphasizing fairness, procedural integrity and education.

Judicial Affairs contributes directly to providing a safe academic and residential environment for all by requiring students to adhere to the highest standards of personal conduct; maintaining a system of accountability through disciplinary review and recording; and facilitating acquisition of pertinent security data. We recognize the quality of a student is not only reflected in their grades, but it is manifest in the manner in which they conduct their personal affairs.

There are currently four professionals on staff, including three hearing officers (the Assistant Dean and Director of Judicial Affairs, the Associate Director, and the Assistant Director), and an office manager. The Associate Director normally supervises interns.

The purpose of the internship is to expose interns to the day-to-day operations of BU’s Judicial Affairs. The position is linked to academic credit and does not entitle the intern to a job at the conclusion of the internship.

While Judicial Affairs also conducts investigations of Title IX complaints, as outlined in Boston University’s Sexual Misconduct/Title IX Policy, Judicial Affairs interns should also not expect to receive any experience working with Title IX cases.
