Blog: University Disciplinary Committee Request

Greetings, UW Students-

The Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct is currently seeking new student members for the University Disciplinary Committee (UDC). The University Disciplinary Committee is comprised of students and faculty who hear disciplinary cases on behalf of the University. Students who have allegedly violated the Student Conduct Code can appear before the University Disciplinary Committee or may choose to have an informal hearing with a Community Standards and Student Conduct Hearing Officer. Additionally, the UDC hears appeals of cases in which a student may have been found responsible for a violation of the code but the student disagrees with the initial finding or sanctions.

New student members will begin their one-year term in January 2015 and will complete their term at the end of December 2015. In order to serve on the University Disciplinary Committee, students must be enrolled full-time (either undergraduate or graduate) and be in good academic standing. Additionally, students must be able to commit to meeting as a committee 5-7 hours per month and should be interested in gaining leadership skills through serving on this University Wide Committee.

Students are selected at random from those students who identify an interest in the University Disciplinary Committee and then training is provided for those selected. This year’s first required training for all new UDC members will be held at the beginning of Winter quarter in January and details will be provided to selected students.

If you are interested in submitting your name for random selection of students to serve on the UDC, please email me directly at jadraper. In your email, please include your name, major, college or school, and year in school. This is the only information I need prior to randomly selecting students. The deadline to submit your name for random selection is 5pm on Monday, November 10th. Students will be notified via email whether or not they have been selected by Tuesday, November 18th.

Thank you and best wishes for the end of the term.

Fair Trade Volunteering Opportunity

Ten Thousand Villages- Seattle is a non-profit fair trade retailer that depends on our volunteers to support and maintain the store! Our volunteers run the register, educate customers in regards to our product and fair trade, adjust merchandise displays, and help with offsite events as well as fundraisers.

We are a fair trade store, which means that every product was made by an artisan that was paid fair wages for their work. We have products from over 40 countries. Our store is run almost entirely by volunteers, which allows us to purchase more products to help support the artisans. When you are welcomed into Ten Thousand Villages, each product has a story rooted by where it originated and who crafted the item.

So what does Ten Thousand Villages mean? The name stems from the idea that each community in the world represents a unique, distinctive group of people. Multiply that idea by ten thousand and it represents the large, diverse community that comprises Ten Thousand Villages.

Our vision is for one day, all artisans in the developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect and be able to live a life of quality. At Ten Thousand Villages- Seattle, we strive to maintain opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stores to our market and other Ten Thousand Villages stores through long-term, fair trading relationships.

Shifts are from 12pm- 8pm daily, an ideal shift lasts 4 hours two times a month or more if you prefer. Before you start volunteering for Ten Thousand Villages- Seattle, please attend one of our orientations which occur every week, 6pm on Wednesday evenings. To sign up for a Volunteer Orientation, please contact Adrienne volunteers.seattle

We would be delighted for you to become apart of the Ten Thousand Villages- Seattle team.
