Attorney/Advocates

Belmont's conduct process is not a criminal or civil litigation process therefore, we do not allow participation of licensed attorneys within our disciplinary situations. Our process is meant to be non-adversarial and educational in nature. We meet students where their choices have led them, we hold them accountable to their choices in order to respectfully challenge the way they think about making decisions as a community member, and we walk beside them throughout the adjudication process so they know our response is because we care about the choices they make but do not judge them as individuals beholden to their past. 

Our combined experience as educators, academic research in the field of student development and our own living faith inform this process. Accordingly, we feel confident it will create a living and learning environment that empowers students to positively engage the collegiate experience academically, personally and collectively.
