The University Board on Student Discipline (UBSD) provides an impartial forum in which there will be a complete examination of allegations of academic dishonesty or misconduct on the part of students. The Tribunal will provide individuals with an opportunity to respond in a timely manner to allegations of academic dishonesty or misconduct and, if appropriate, will recommend a course of action to the President, or to the Vice-President, Academic if the President has already played a role in the case.
