Subject of Possible Rule Making: Cascadia College intends to adopt rules amending the student conduct code, chapter 132Z-115 WAC, and adopting related amendments to WAC 132Z-108-050 concerning brief adjudicative proceedings.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.50.140 and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), chapter 34.05 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Rule changes are needed to update, clarify, and streamline student conduct code standards and procedures, as well as to incorporate federal requirements relating to sexual harassment and sexual misconduct, including the Violence Against Women Act, Clery Act amendments, and OCR guidance letters.
Process for Developing New Rule: Initial review by student code workgroup consisting of student code administrators, student leadership, and conflict resolution council members, followed by review through normal campus-wide policy review procedures, APA notice and public comment procedures, and final approval by board of trustees.
