Why are you part of peer review board and what is the purpose of having a panel of peers to review student conduct issues?

I chose to be a part of the Peer Review Board because I think it is an excellent option that RMC adds for the safety and education of its students. Having been in front of the Peer Review Board once before, I recognize the importance of the student panel, and their role to listen to students and make decisions without having to go to the administration. As students, I believe it is our role to ensure that RMC stays a fun yet safe environment. I believe that peer-to-peer review of student conduct is especially effective because students are given a chance to explain for themselves. Students feel more comfortable in front of their peers and not in front of administration or someone they do not know.

Why are you part of the Peer Review Board? 

I want to be involved with my school as much as possible. Being a part of the peer review board has helped me understand Rocky Mountain College’s policies and meet some really great RMC students.

What is the purpose of having a panel of peers to review student conduct issues?

The reason the Peer Review Board is important is because it takes pressure off the students. The board is something that is in between the students and the school. We have the opportunity to let the students tell their side of the story and not feel pressured by the school administration.

The Peer Review Board is a privilege and its purpose is to allow students the opportunity to stand before their peers and explain why they were or were not in violation of the campus policy.

What is the purpose of having a panel of peers to review student conduct issues?

I believe Peer Review Board provides students with an environment that allows them to say what they need to, and feel safe and secure doing so. A student-to-student meeting eases some of the tension and makes progress quicker while keeping a calm atmosphere.

Why are you part of the Peer Review Board?

I am a part of the peer review board because I believe in the impact this board can have on the students at RMC. In my early days, attending college, I was slightly irresponsible and made some mistakes myself. Going in front of a student lead panel to explain my missteps made me not only realize what I had done wrong, but why it was wrong and that my actions have consequences. I believe in owning your own mistakes and I believe that, coming to that realization yourself is important. I think that, discussing consequences with your peers has a far greater impact on a student’s actions, than being reprimanded by someone in authority.

Why are you part of the Peer Review Board?

I think it's important for students to be encouraged by not only staff and faculty, but also their peers to take responsibility for their actions.

What is the purpose of having a panel of peers to review student conduct issues?

Having peers review student conduct issues allows for student-to-student communication on the things that can be done to help students learn the best way to act on campus for themselves and other students.
