Biographical / Historical

Formed following the redrafting of the Tufts Community Union (TCU) constitution in 1981, the Tufts Community Union Judiciary (TCUJ) exercises the judicial powers of the TCU undergraduate student government in a court format. As of 2000, seven elected justices of the TCUJ are empowered to rule on and interpret the constitutionality of legislation, decisions, and actions of any organization of the TCU. They are also able to order the TCU Senate, Elections Board, Class councils, and recognized student organizations to adhere to their respective constitutional duties. The justices also hear complaints brought forward against organizations by other organizations or individual members of the TCU and disciplinary charges brought against the TCU Senate or Class Councils. Allegations brought against a member of the TCUJ or ELBO are heard respectively by the TCU Senate and the Committee on Student Life. The TCUJ also has the responsibility of recognizing and re-recognizing student organization in compliance with university polices and the TCUJ's own by-laws.
