Statement from Officers of Senate

Re: Code of Student Conduct

Senate acknowledges the lack of clarity in the Code of Student conduct, as outlined by the Vice Provost Student affairs, and regrets the impact it has had on those who apply and are subject to its application.  Senate is undertaking a full review of the code by striking a diverse and inclusive committee to not only address the more recent issues of freedom of expression in relation to racism and islamophobia, but also to mitigate any inherent biases, improve the processes, transparency as we seek to embed in all of our policies our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
