«It has been proposed that the topic of concern should be included on the agenda of the Discussion at 2pm on Tuesday, 6 March 2018 in the Senate-House. The date of the Discussion is subject to the approval of the University’s Council and is expected to be confirmed in the Reporter on 21 February.»
After gathering the signatures of 10 academics, the women's campaign has prompted a discussion at Senate House about reforming the Disciplinary Procedure so that it no longer relies on a criminal standard of proof (beyond reasonable doubt) but the BALANCE OF PROBABILITIES.
The aim of this discussion is to keep pressure up on the university and to demonstrate, in conjunction with the open letter, that this is something that students want and that Breaking the Silence is meaningless without vital change.
A topic of concern is a discussion that takes place at Senate House on a particular topic/motion. The topic is:
'A discussion about whether or not the current standard of proof used in the University disciplinary regulations (beyond reasonable doubt) should be changed to proof on the balance of probabilities in student cases'
Anybody can speak in favour or against the motion, you can prepare a speech beforehand, go up and read it. The event is recorded. You *must* wear a gown.
PLEASE COMMENT BELOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK IN FAVOUR OF THE TOPIC.
