The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the results of your Judicial Board hearing on November 30, 2003. The board has unanimously found you in violation of Disruptive Conduct, the Alcohol Policy and the Drug Policy.

The board as decided on the following sanctions:

Disciplinary probation – effective immediately and continuing through the remainder of the 2003-04 academic year.

During this probationary period you are not allowed to park or drive a vehicle on University property, and you will not be permitted to participate in the parking lottery.

The Judicial Board applauds your intentions to pursue educational means to deal with your alcohol and/or drug problem. You are required to continue to meet on a regular basis with a counselor in Counseling Services (as you indicated you are already doing) throughout your probation.

In addition, you are required to write a formal letter of apology to _________ and _________. The letter should be submitted to Dean Truesdell no later than December 10, 2003 and she will see that they receive it.

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.

Sincerely,
Kit Okimoto
Chair, Judicial Board
