Student Tribunal Pool Member

Student Tribunal Pool Member

Type of Position: Volunteer, eligible for Co-Curricular Record

Length of Term: September 1st, 2021 to May 31st, 2022

Deadline to Apply: August 15th 2021 at 11:59pm

The CSU’s mission is to serve students, defend their rights, and act as their highest representative body at Concordia. Two things are essential: that we are beholden to our membership, and that our funds are used responsibly.

Description of the Role: Students appointed to the Student Tribunal Pool will work alongside the Office of Student Tribunals on several student tribunal hearings.

The Office of Student Tribunals is responsible for hearings provided for in Concordia’s Code of Rights and Responsibilities, the Academic Code of Conduct, the Academic Re-evaluation Procedure, the Graduate Academic Appeals Procedures, and any other Codes or Policies that may be adopted which refer to the Tribunal Hearing Pools. When a student is accused of breaking these rules, they are referred to a hearing. Legal professionals oversee cases, but rulings ultimately lie in the hands of Tribunal Pool members. This is a great opportunity to ensure that all students are provided the due process that they deserve, as well as a chance to dabble in the world of law and order.

Eligibility: Students shall be registered in an undergraduate program and be in acceptable academic standing. Students who have been sanctioned under the Code of Rights and Responsibilities or the Academic Code of Conduct within the three (3) years previous to their nomination are not eligible.

Equitable Appointing: The Concordia Student Union welcomes the contributions that individuals from traditionally marginalized communities, as outlined under the prohibited grounds for discrimination in the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, bring to our organization. Marginalized communities include racialized people and visible minorities; Indigenous people; women; 2SLGBTQIA+ people; ethnic minorities; language minorities; and people with disabilities. Applicants shall feel free to self-identify in their cover letter or application if they are a member of a marginalized community. Candidates may also feel free to include the phrase “I would like to be considered for employment equity” to be considered for employment equity without disclosing which group they are a part of.
