All-Campus Judicial Council


“May the Other Part Also Be Heard”

The All-Campus Judicial Council (ACJC) is the Judicial Branch of the Students’ Association Government. ACJC serves both as the Students’ Association highest court and as a hearing panel, authorized by the University, to address alleged violations of the student conduct standards. Fundamental to each of these roles is that ACJC provides a true jury of one’s peers. For more information, contact Chief Justice Wesline Manuelpillai.

Reviewing Actions of the SA Government

ACJC functions as a supreme court within the Students’ Association Government. The SA Constitution grants the All-Campus Judicial Council the authority to interpret and review the actions of the Student Association Senate, organizations, and the student body. For example, the council decides several cases related to the Senate elections. If you believe the actions of the SA President, Senate, or any of its standing committees have harmed you or your organization through a violation of the SA Constitution or its bylaws, you can contact the All-Campus Judicial Council for redress of your grievances.

Use the Appeal Form!

In so doing, ACJC interprets the SA Constitution and its bylaws to determine the appropriate outcome, based on the preexisting rules of the Student Association. Decisions of ACJC are not subject to review or reversal by the SA Senate or President.

What ACJC Does

All Students’ Association hearings are open to all members of the University community.
