University seeks input about student conduct process

PULLMAN, Wash. – The Washington State University community – students, faculty, staff, alumni and other supporters – is invited to provide input as the external review of the university’s student conduct process moves forward.

The review was launched Oct. 28 after community organizations and individuals raised concerns about alleged racial and ethnic bias against students in recent decisions made by the Student Conduct Boards. Marc Lyons, an attorney specializing in education law, is leading the review of the student conduct process, focusing on the concerns raised about racial and ethnic bias.

Comments may be submitted via this Web page. To ensure the integrity of the review, Lyons and his team will have direct access to the comments. Input may be submitted anonymously.

“I am deeply committed to ensuring our students are treated equitably in every interaction with members of the university community, including faculty, staff and other students,” said WSU President Kirk Schulz. “I invite the Cougar Nation to join us in creating a nationally recognized best-in-class student conduct process – a process reflective of one of the top 25 public research universities in the country.”

Lyons is expected to complete his report by early January.
