The University Tribunal was first established in 1969 by President Kingman Brewster to serve as a University-wide disciplinary body for students, using detailed procedures developed by a nine-member committee chaired by Professor Fleming James. In 1975, the Yale Corporation authorized the Senior Fellow and the President to revise the Tribunal Procedures as necessary from time to time. The Tribunal, convened only as needed, currently addresses the most serious allegations of misconduct by a student or faculty member.
