Ever had a miscommunication with the SJB or felt that you were given an unfair hearing? If so, then you would probably be interested in hearing about what the WSA is working towards. Please read about our effort to raise the Standard of Proof used in our Student Judicial Process and help us achieve this fair standard by signing the petition and telling us about some of the experiences you have had with the SJB.
Over 300 students have already signed the petition and dozens have submitted cases of misrulings, but we need even more if we want change to happen. It only takes a few minutes—get involved and have your voice heard!
We have been working on this issue since the fall and strongly feel that it would improve our system at Wes. The basic idea behind this is increasing the level of certainty from slight (anywhere over 50%) to substantial (roughly 75% or higher). We feel that in a majority of cases, this is a matter of consistency.
If you have any questions or concerns, let us know! :)
