We invite all members of the community to play an important role in the University of Pennsylvania's Student Disciplinary System by volunteering to serve as an Advisor.
Any University faculty member, staff member, or student in good academic and disciplinary standing may serve as an Advisor.
An Advisor helps students involved in disciplinary proceedings to understand both the procedures and the philosophy of the disciplinary process. Students involved in the Disciplinary System include complainants, witnesses, and respondents. Advisors assist students in preparing for meetings and hearings and may accompany students to all meetings and hearings. More importantly, Advisors offer students guidance and support throughout the disciplinary process.
Advisors are an essential part of the Disciplinary System. The Advisor is the person best situated to turn the student's experience with the Disciplinary System into an educational and constructive one.
