Due Process at Dartmouth

October 24, 2006

In an October 17 column in The Dartmouth student newspaper, Michael Herman, a Dartmouth student, writes to defend changes to Dartmouth College’s student disciplinary process proposed by a Student Assembly taskforce. In particular, Herman defends the taskforce’s recommendations that (1) Dartmouth adopt a “clear and convincing” evidentiary standard for student discipline, and (2) that Dartmouth allow accused students to directly question their accusers. Both recommendations would provide for more due process than Dartmouth currently grants its students—and Dartmouth is hardly alone in having minimal procedural protections.
