Subject of Possible Rule Making: Central Washington University intends to adopt rules amending the student conduct code, chapter 106-120 WAC, and adopting related amendments to WAC 106-08-050, concerning brief adjudicative proceedings.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.35.120 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 Title IX/OCR guidance letters.
Process for Developing New Rule: Initial review by student code administrators, followed by review through normal campus policy review procedures, publication in the campus newspaper, APA notice and public comment procedures, and final approval by board of trustees.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Kimberly J. Dawson, Rules Coordinator, Office of the President, Central Washington University, 400 East University Way, Ellensburg, WA 98926-7501, (509) 963-2111,
