Greek Judicial Board
The Greek Judicial Board, casually known as the J-Board, is a committee of members of the Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, & Panhellenic Council that reviews rule violations and assigned punishments for them (which is submits to Student Affairs for approval). It falls under the Inter Greek Council.
The J-board chairman is voted into the position by representatives from every Greek organization at Columbia, and the fellow members of the board go through a selection and training process that is approved by Columbia administrative staff.
According to the Student Affairs website, the J-Board exemplifies "self-governance". This is objectively true, since the board's meetings are closed. And "though a weekly merry-go-round of Greeks judging and being judged by one another might lead the casual observer to suspect corruption, shut up, it's not a big deal—it's 'an important part of our vibrant Greek community'."
When the ZBT hazing scandal went down, the J-Board recommended that ZBT lose its charter (and thereby lose Columbia recognition). This recommendation was approved by Terry Martinez but then reversed by Kevin Shollenberger.
