New Student Handbook with revised Student Code of Conduct available online; Undergraduate Bulletin online, too

This is a guest post from the Division of Campus Life:

A new Student Handbook has been developed for undergraduate students. The new handbook was created to provide students with important University information, policies, and processes in an online format that’s easy to navigate. While the handbook has a wealth of information, the newly revised Student Code of Conduct comprises much of the content.

The Student Code of Conduct was revised through a process that was intentional, comprehensive, and deliberate, with the goal of allowing thorough consideration of various stakeholder perspectives.

“I have been impressed during the last year and a half by the extensive involvement of students, faculty, and administrators in offering comments and recommendations regarding the proposed code revisions and then deliberating about the best way to make changes in response to this community feedback,” said John Dinan, professor of politics and international Affairs and chair of the Judicial Council.

Additionally, the Undergraduate Bulletin is now published digitally. The Bulletin contains the course offerings and requirements of the undergraduate schools, as well as other important academic policies and procedures.

You may access the Handbook at go.wfu.edu/studenthandbook and the Bulletin at bulletin.wfu.edu. These new online resources are important publications for our community.

Newly reconstituted review committee formed for Code of Conduct for students

On Feb. 6, the Division of Campus Life announced a new development in its revision process for the Code of Conduct for students.  Matt Clifford, associate dean of students, emailed this announcement to undergraduate students:

As a reminder, this year, the Wake Forest community has an important opportunity to contribute to and shape the Code of Conduct. In the fall, our office engaged the community in a period of public review and comment on suggested revisions to the Code. During the period, we received 42 comments, held six public listening sessions, and attended numerous other meetings with students, faculty, and staff.

This spring, a newly reconstituted review committee will consider comments that have been submitted and make recommendations for a final document. During the comment process, I heard the desire to have more faculty and student voices on the group. Our new group is composed of five students, five faculty, and four staff. I am pleased to share that the following individuals have agreed to serve on the Code of Conduct Review Committee:

  • Virginia Hamilton, student
  • Lizzy Woods, student
  • Isabella Ryan, student
  • Phillip Yurchenko, student
  • Maria Cortez-Perez, student
  • John Dinan, faculty
  • Erica Still, faculty
  • Rian Bowie, faculty
  • Michael Pisapia, faculty
  • Pat Lord, faculty
  • José Villalba, staff
  • Tanya Jachimiak, staff
  • Matt Clifford, staff, chair, ex-officio
  • Adam Goldstein, staff, ex-officio

The committee’s work will focus on the primary areas where feedback was offered. Our goal will be to understand the principles that have been shared in comments and find a balance that supports our community’s values and ideals.

As always, our website is the primary source of information about the revision. If you have any questions about this process, please contact me at cliffomw@nullwfu.edu.

Matt Clifford,
Associate Dean of Students, Student Conduct
