ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO
The Office of Student Conduct is proposing a set of revisions to the UC San Diego Student Conduct Code to go into effect for Fall 2013. Some of the key proposed changes include:
* Reintroducing University Representatives to the Student Conduct Review (e.g. formal hearing) process.
* Adding language to the grounds of interim suspensions referencing the University's policy on Free Speech and Advocacy (PPM 510-IX).
* Clarifying the definition of hazing.
* Adding language allowing for multiple student respondents to participate in a Student Conduct Review when the alleged violations result from the same underlying incident.
* Adding language that all information to be presented at a Student Conduct Review must be submitted by the student respondent and the University Representative at the same time prior to the Review.
The proposed changes were initially provided to the Student Conduct Standards Group for review and after incorporating feedback from the group, they are now available for review and comment by the greater campus community.
To view the summary of the proposed changes and a version of the Code showing the proposed changes, go to studentconduct.ucsd.edu.
Please direct all public comment on the proposed changes to Director of Student Conduct Ben White at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 31, 2013.
