M. Student Code Revision
Mr. Griffin, Chairman of the Student Code Revision Committee, reported
that his committee had received recommendations for revisions in the present
Student Code from students, from the Student Government, and from the Office of
the Dean of Students. An open hearing was held by the committee and additional
recommendations were received from students and faculty members. The com-
mittee took the various recommendations and suggestions it had received and,
after a thorough and careful evaluation of each one, prepared its recommendations
for changes in the Student Code for presentation to the Board. He said that
several changes were proposed primarily in the interests of clarification of the
present Code. Copies of the revised document were mailed to the Trustees in
advance of the meeting so that all members would be familiar with the proposed
changes. Mr. Griffin called attention to Sections 1. 2a and 1. 2b which have been
added to the present Code. A student charged with engaging in interference,
coercion or disruption which impedes, impairs or disrupts University missions,
processes or functions or interferes with the rights of others on University
property under Section 1. 2a would appear before the University Judicial Board
rather than before the Appeals Board which has jurisdiction when a student is
charged under Section VI of the Code. Section 1. Zb was added to place the student
on more effective notice with regard to narcotics on the campus.
Mr. Griffin moved that the Code of Student Conduct as proposed in the
document before the Board of Trustees be adopted. His motion was seconded by
Dr. Sears. Mr. Wendelsdorf said he wished to propose several amendments and
requested that the Board members vote for them "for the University's good".
Although each Board member had received a copy of Mr. Wendelsdorf's proposed
amendments to the report of the Student Code Revision Committee a few days
prior to the meeting, he indicated his desire to present the amendments individu-
ally rather than as a whole. The Board agreeing to this procedure, Mr.
Wendelsdorf then gave a brief statement of support for amendments 1. 311 and
1. 32 and moved their adoption (these two amendments and subsequent ones are
contained in Mr. Wendelsdorf's document at the end of the Minutes. ) His motion
died for lack of a second.
Mr. Bell, saying that he felt the Board should not and could not act on
Mr. Wendelsdorf's amendments without further study, moved to amend Mr.
Griffin's motion so that Mr. Wendelsdorf's amendments might be accepted and
referred to the committee and any action on the Code be postponed until this
committee reported back to the Board at a special called meeting. Mr.
Wendelsdorf seconded the motion and, on roll call vote, it was defeated by a
vote of eight to one with two abstentions.
