Residential Adjudication Board

The Residential Adjudication Board (ResBoard) is a unique leadership opportunity for students to serve the community by promoting safety, trust, accountability, and respect within our residence halls. Board members resolve allegations of misconduct within the residence halls through determining whether a student is responsible for a violation of residential policies, and recommending educational sanctions. Additionally, members facilitate community outreach and educational presentations on courteous and responsible living. Through these initiatives, the ResBoard positively influences community behavior, and upholds a climate of integrity in George Mason University’s residential communities.
