Conduct stats released

The office of Student Affairs recently released statistics regarding student conduct hearings on campus, a departure from past secrecy surrounding Student Hearing Council and Judicial Council hearings.

The information discloses the amount of thefts and hospitalizations on campus, as well as summaries of student conduct hearings, presented anonymously. The full data is available here.

Dean of Students Travis Greene said that the decision arose out of a desire to increase transparency in the process of dealing with student conduct violations.

“As a residential liberal arts community, where self-governance and personal responsibility are hallmarks, it is very appropriate to share this information with the student community,” Greene wrote in the released information.

Director of ACE Security Ben Howort ‘09 initially approached Greene with the idea of publishing the stats online.
Howort said that he hoped the publication would help inform the campus as to how the college responds to specific student actions.
