Public hearing notice: Jan. 26, 2016

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held at Noon on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016, in Room 332 of the Husky Union Building (HUB), on the University of Washington Seattle campus.  Satellite locations will be available on the UW Bothell campus in Room UW2-307, and on the UW Tacoma campus in Room WCG-110.

The purpose of the hearing is to allow all interested persons an opportunity to present their views, either orally or in writing, on the proposed amendments to Chapter 478-120 WAC, “Student Conduct Code for the University of Washington,” and WAC 478-108-010, “Matters Subject to Brief Adjudication.”

The proposed revisions to Chapter 478-120 WAC and WAC 478-108-010 are designed to clarify expectations for student’s rights and responsibilities, to comply with recent federal and state law regarding sexual misconduct, and to make the chapter easier to navigate.
