For the Board on Academic Honesty, the secretary handles logistical questions pertaining to hearing dates, records, and appointments to review case files. The secretary can also answer general questions about the hearing process. The chair makes policy rulings on the adjudication of specific cases, and can be contacted via the academic honesty concern report form.
Structurally separate from the board, the academic honesty liaison offers confidential counseling about the academic honesty process. The liaison can also help with drafting statements for board hearings, address general questions about the hearing process, and make referrals to other resources as needed.
For a complete list of contacts, see the contact us page.

CARE Network (Limited Sharing)
The University of Rochester recognizes that often students facing personal or academic struggles would benefit from support from multiple recourses on campus. The CARE network allows students to request assistance, even when they do not know what resources are available to them.
We may pass information that you provide to us along to the CARE network when we believe there is a need for multi-layered support from the campus community. The CARE network administrator shares information only with staff who need to know it in order to help you.
For more information, visit the CARE website or contact the CARE network:
Interfaith Chapel (Confidential)
Our chaplains are a great resource for students needing a sympathetic ear. Speaking with a chaplain is completely confidential, so nothing a student shares will be disclosed to anyone else.
Students do not have to be part of one of the religious/spiritual communities on campus to see one of the chaplains. The chaplains, meanwhile, are happy to counsel a student of no faith or a different faith with no expectation or pressure on them to become affiliated in any way with a faith tradition.
Students can call and make an appointment with one of the chaplains. They can also simply come to the Interfaith Chapel any day between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., where they will likely find chaplains able to speak with them.
For more information visit the Interfaith Chapel website or contact the chapel director:
Rev. Dr. C. Denise Yarbrough
