During this year, the history of this committee was discussed including past work of the committee and creation/ownership of the sanctioning model. There were various discussions regarding this committee's role in serving as an overarching adviser to OSI, HAC and Student Honor Committee.
Graduate Student Sanction Models
The committee discussed several issues related to graduate students. In particular whether external grants/fellowships, immigration status, effect on professional reputation etc., ought to or ought not to have an effect on sanctions. Historically any such secondary and indirect implications are not a part of the sanctioning model.
Mitigating Circumstances in Sanction Models
Historically, the committee has avoided any explicit listing of mitigating circumstances, and any considerations in the sanctioning model of secondary and indirect consequences. The committee decided to continue this paradigm during recommendations for this year.
