The University Council yesterday decided to
shift its discussion to political dissent, the most
controversial area of the proposed code of non-
academic conduct. Faculty members agreed with
students on the council that the subject could be
eliminated from a final draft of the code.
"It might be that distinguishing the category of
civil dissent will have us do nothing about it at all,"
said councilmember Shaw Livermore, a professor of
Stuent councilmembers have argued that any
code governing student behavior outside the
classroom should not allow the University to crack
down on political dissent. The issue helped raise
student opposition to previous drafts of the code.
The council-composed of students, faculty, and
administrators-has been working on writing a
code since October of 1984. The University
administration insists a code is needed to
supplement the civil court system.
By starting last spring with a discussion draft of
"emergency procedures" covering violent crimes
like murder and assault, the council had hoped to
avoid controversy, gather input, and gain
momentum to tackle more controversial issues.
The council yesterday decided to discuss the
controversial issue of political dissent, but student
members of the council still question the.need for
"Our mistake has been assuming that there are
problems that can't be adequately dealt with using
mediation or other alternatives," said student
member Ken Weine.
"No one has ever proven that this University
needs a code," added student member Jennifer
Such ambivalance has contributed to the
council's slow progress since it began working. The
panel has been plagued by rotating members and
"The reason we're not focused is that we don't all
agree upon where we want to go," said Internal
Medicine Prof. Donald Rucknagel, co-chair of the
council. "We should proceed to wherever we want to
do by starting from scratch," he added.
The council has still received no reaction from
the University community to its emergency
procedures and Rucknagel feels," there's no
urgency to deal with it."
But the administration appears to be growing
more impatient. University President Harold
Shapiro last fall threatened to bypass the council and
propose the administration's code proposal- which
has been rejected by the Michigan Student
Assembly- to the Board of Regents because he was
dissatisfied with the council's progress. MSA has
the right to approve any code draft.
Although Virginia Nordby, executive assistant to
the president and author of a 1984 draft of the the
code, declined to comment on the University
Council's progress last night, she said that the
administration's attitude has not changed.
