Elizabeth, thanks for writing back so quickly. I am available at 9 am on Monday to meet if that works for you. I have added that time to my calendar.

I would like to clarify that my meeting with you will not be considered a “student conduct” meeting/hearing. While you received an official letter indicating that we needed to meet regarding allegations associated with potential violations of the Student Code of Conduct, I will not be meeting with you to that end. Rather, I would like to talk with you about the incident, hear your perspective, and also share the perspectives of the Student Life staff who responded on Friday. For this reason, you may disregard the letter that was sent to you referencing any student conduct issue associated with Friday’s incident as I am officially closing that aspect of the case. I would like to meet, however, as I believe it would be productive to talk further.

I look forward to talking with you on Monday. If I can answer any questions in the meantime, please let me know.
