J-Board Letter -wmd -dlh

December 2, 2004Dear ,

The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the results of your Judicial Board hearing on December 2, 2004. After careful review of information provided by all participants at the hearing, the Judicial Board has unanimously found you in violation of the alcohol policy, disruptive conduct, and the personal safety policy.

The board has decided on the following sanctions:

Disciplinary probation the remainder of the 2004-2005 academic year. Further violation of the Social Code shall result in a minimum penalty of suspension.

In addition, you must meet with Paul Valencic, Alcohol Education Coordinator, to complete an alcohol assessment and to discuss the relationship between alcohol use and anger. You will be required to perform 10 hours of service related to alcohol education. In order to complete these sanctions, you must schedule an appointment with Paul Valencic no later than January 10, 2005. The service must be completed by the end of Term II of the 2004-2005 academic year.

If you wish to appeal this decision you must inform the President, in writing, within three days of receiving this letter.

The members of the Board hope you understand that our responsibility is to hear all formal complaints, decide if a violation has been committed and apply a sanction when warranted. We hope you understand that you need to respect the rights of others if we are to maintain a satisfactory living and learning environment at Lawrence. The college community must insist upon the cooperation and responsible judgment of all students.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the hearing or the appeals process, please contact me or the Dean of Students, Nancy Truesdell.


Ben Weston
Chair, Judicial Board
