Date: Mon, 13 Feb 2006 TO: Kris Stewart, Chair, Instructional and Information Technology Committee FROM: David Ely, Senate Vice Chair RE: Referral - New CSU Student Code of Conduct Kris - At its November meeting, the CSU Board of Trustees approved a new CSU Student Code of Conduct. The Committee on Educational Policy summarized their new policy in the following way. "The substantive content of the revised draft is not radically different from the substance of the existing code. But it is a clearer expression of the university's positive expectations of students and the specific grounds that can form the basis for discipline. There are some new bases for discipline that did not exist when the original code was drafted (e.g., computer misuse)." (CSU Board of Trustees Agenda, November 7-8, 2005, Committee on Educational Policy; http://www.calstate.edu/BOT/Agendas/nov05/EdPol.pdf ). The new code appears on pages 5-10 of the attached document and is available online at: http://www.calstate.edu/BOT/Agendas/nov05/index.shtml. One section of the new code, Section 41301.b.15, addresses the misuse of computer facilities or resources. The Senate officers ask the Instructional and Information Technology Committee to consider whether the SDSU Policy File needs to be updated to reflect the newly adopted code on computer use and to report your recommendations to the Senate. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this referral. __________________________________________ David Ely Department of Finance College of Business Administration San Diego State University San Diego, CA 92182-8236 Telephone: (619) 594-6842 Fax: (619) 594-3272 www-rohan.sdsu.edu/~elyweb/ __________________________________________
