The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the results of your Judicial Board hearing on May 23, 2013.  The Judicial Board has unanimously found you in violation of LUCC legislation IV.D.2.03 Disruptive Behavior: Members of the Lawrence Community will not engage in intimidation and/or harassment of another person through physical, mental, or emotional means; and 3.02: Members of the Lawrence community will not engage in vandalism.

The board has decided on the following sanctions:
• You will not be allowed to attend any official part of the senior dinner, including the social reception and dinner itself.
• You are prohibited from all Lawrence University owned student housing with the exception of _________________.

Should these sanctions be violated, additional action will be taken, which may include not walking during graduation.

In determining these sanctions, the board considered the events of this specific incident in conjunction with an extensive history of disrespect for the campus community.  The board believes that restricting access to these community spaces and events is appropriate because you have not demonstrated that you have learned from previous educational opportunities provided by the Office of Campus Life.

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 wish to appeal this decision you must inform the President, in writing, within three days of receiving this letter.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the hearing or the appeals process, please contact me, Curt Lauderdale, Assistant Dean of Students for Campus Life, or the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, Nancy Truesdell.

Sincerely,
