How do I choose an advisor?

may select an advisor to advise him/her during student conduct proceedings. Only one advisor is permitted per accused
student and complainant. An advisor may be present at a hearing
to provide support for students. An advisor may be any individual selected by
the student, including, but not limited to, a friend, student, IUP
administrator, family member, or attorney. S/he may consult and interact
privately with the student during the student conduct proceedings. The advisor
is not permitted to represent the
student. A student conduct proceeding cannot be rescheduled based on the
