Senate Discussions:

The Resolution

Whereas the charter of the University Assembly stipulates that the said Assembly has “legislative authority for those aspects of the conduct of members of the university now covered by the Campus Code of Conduct,” and

Whereas the University Assembly has received, reviewed, and accepted the report of its Codes and Judicial Committee (CJC) concerning the Code, and

Whereas the said report recommends maintenance of Cornell University’s existing practice in the following three areas:

a) the Judicial Administrator should remain independent; b) the UA should retain oversight over the Code of Conduct; and c) a uniform judicial process should be retained for campus judicial proceedings, and

Whereas
these recommendations are in accord with an overwhelming majority of community opinion expressed in recent public discussion of the Code, and have been endorsed in resolutions of the Student Assembly and of the Graduate and Professional Students Association,

Be it therefore resolved that the Faculty Senate endorses the recommendations of the CJC, including the independence of the Judicial Administrator, the University Assembly’s oversight over the Code of Conduct, and the recommended uniform process for campus judicial
proceedings.

Respectfully submitted,
