The judicial board (Honor Board, Civitas Council, or Appeals Board) and individual conduct officers may request that any witnesses provide testimony during a conduct hearing. A witness is any individual who has personal knowledge of the case being adjudicated (i.e. student, roommate, teammate, residential life staff, campus safety officer, etc.). Parents/guardians may not serve as witnesses. Character witnesses are permitted. Character witnesses must be a member of the Converse University community (i.e. current student, staff, or faculty members).
