OMA&D Academic Counseling Services

The Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct is currently seeking new student members for the University Disciplinary Committee (UDC).  The University Disciplinary Committee is comprised of students and faculty who hear disciplinary cases on behalf of the University. Students who have allegedly violated the Student Conduct Code can appear before the University Disciplinary Committee or may choose to have an informal hearing with a Community Standards and Student Conduct Hearing Officer.  Additionally, the UDC hears appeals of cases in which a student may have been found responsible for a violation of the code but the student disagrees with the initial finding or sanctions.

New student members will begin their one-year term in January 2015 and will complete their term at the end of December 2015. In order to serve on the University Disciplinary Committee, students must be enrolled full-time (either undergraduate or graduate) and be in good academic standing. Additionally, students must be able to commit to meeting as a committee 5-7 hours per month and should be interested in gaining leadership skills through serving on this University Wide Committee.

Students are selected at random from those students who identify an interest in the University Disciplinary Committee and then training is provided for those selected. This year’s first required training for all new UDC members will be held at the beginning of Winter quarter in January and details will be provided to selected students.

If you are interested in submitting your name for random selection of students to serve on the UDC, please email me directly at In your email, please include your name, major, college or school, and year in school. This is the only information I need prior to randomly selecting students. The deadline to submit your name for random selection is 5pm on Monday, November 10th. Students will be notified via email whether or not they have been selected by Tuesday, November 18th.


The Husky Leadership Initiative and Starbucks present:

2014-2015 Leadership Firesides

The popular Leadership Fireside series is an ongoing opportunity for students to engage in meaningful dialogue with a diverse range of civic, educational, corporate and campus leaders in an informal setting. These leaders will share their personal journeys and perspectives on leadership and become momentary mentors for students attending the event. The diversity of guest speakers means that each Fireside will be unique. These events are a way for students to learn more about and reflect on leadership and build their leadership skills. Students who want to engage in a dialogue about leadership and further develop the skills and knowledge to be effective leaders on and off campus will want to be sure to attend.
The setting is intimate and informal and space is limited for each program. Registration is strongly encouraged so you don’t miss out! Register for autumn quarter Firesides here. You may enter the registration system as many times as necessary.

The Husky Leadership Certificate recognizes and celebrates UW students’ innovative leadership accomplishments and characteristics. Students work with a mentor who guides them in reflecting on their time as Huskies. The product of this is a student-created e-portfolio demonstrating what they have learned about leadership and who they have become as leaders.

WHO are we looking for?

We seek undergraduate Huskies in their 3rd, 4thor 5th year who practice leadership in a variety of ways. Our leaders are change-agents, activists, community organizers, entrepreneurs, scholars and more.

HOW do you get involved?

WHY participate?

The Husky Leadership Certificate builds upon students’ previous experiences and adds value to their degrees by increasing self-awareness of their campus engagement, community impact, and personal development. Certificate recipients will be able to articulate their values, goals, strengths and how their Husky experience has prepared them to become effective leaders on campus and in the years to come.
