Peer Review Board

The Peer Review Board (PRB) is made up of students who oversee community conduct and the observation of the House Rules within Cornell's undergraduate residential communities.

By engaging in peer-to-peer dialog about community impact, and holding hearings with students who are referred to the PRB for House Rules violations, members of the PRB help uphold students' rights and foster safe and respectful communities. The mission of the PRB is to "educate, not punish."

Please refer to the Mission and Goals page for more detailed information.

Please refer to the Hearings page if you have been referred to the PRB for a House Rules violation.

Who We Are

The Peer Review Board is made up of 32 undergraduate campus residents on two main boards – a Tuesday Board and a Thursday Board – who meet weekly to conduct hearings and engage in community discussions. Each Board has a Chair, Vice Chair, and Board Coordinator, and is overseen by the Executive Chair. There is also an Executive Board that hears appeal and non-compliance cases and sets the general policies for the PRB as a whole.

2016-2017 Executive Board:

Executive Chair: Jordan Bakst
Chair: Nick Longman
Chair: Emily Shapiro
Vice Chair: Anthony Gullo (Fall) Jane Hinkle (Spring)
Vice Chair: Mara Schein
Board Coordinator: Elisabeth Abeles
