judicial advocates

Judicial Advocates are students like you who assist fellow students who are going to a Student Conduct Hearing. They help the accused Student understand both the process of the hearing and the possible sanctions. If requested, the advocate may be present during the student conduct hearing. At the hearing the advocate can only advise the student on what he or she should say or do.

If you have any questions regarding Judicial Advocate services or how to become an advocate, please contact the Director of Student Advancement, Chanelle Waligura (cwaligu2@kent.edu).
