New language added to the Student Conduct Code

AU Student Government announced a change to the Student Conduct Code on March 3 that includes specific language on handling identity-biased attacks. The Student Conduct Code now says in Section 16 that “significant factors” in determining sanctions will include “evidence that the respondent’s conduct was motivated by bias towards an individual or group on the basis of real or perceived, race, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin, age, disability, ethnicity, veteran status, or sexual orientation.” The heads of this change were Director of the Student Advocacy Center junior Will Mascaro and Director of the Diversity and Inclusion Working Group junior Lauren Lumpkin.
