on the topic of the student code of conduct, it was crafted very similarly to the constitution specifically in how they included certain “protections” that are intentionally vague or left to the discernment of whoever is enforcing it at the time
plus it includes other sections that directly contradict the “protections” depending on the interpretation of the person enforcing
examples include: section 3 which outlines student rights, specifically the “guaranteed freedoms of expression, inquiry and assembly…;the right to organize groups; the right to join associations in support of any cause or common interest” immediately after says
“the right to peacefully protest, provided that such activity is conducted in a reasonable manner..” the use of reasonable here is intentional as what is “reasonable” is subjective
then in 7a of section 6 it states that students are prohibited from, “acting in a manner that impairs, interferes with or obstructs the orderly conduct, processes, or functions of the University or that interferes with or negatively impacts any person or persons in the classroom
or on University owned or operated property..” which allows the university to punish students should their peaceful protest be determined as unreasonable or interfering with or obstructing “the orderly conduct processes, or functions of the University”
this is why the note about the protesters supposedly interfering with the covid-19 tests being carried out was included in the email, it created physical documentation of what changed the protest from being regular and peaceful, which is protected by the code of conduct
to disruptive and unreasonable which is punishable by the code of conduct
so when attempts are made to punish students protesting on the grounds of the protest not being peaceful but instead disruptive, make sure to have proof of that being “disinformation”

The email sent out regarding the protest:
As we can see through this email and the experiences shared of those on the ground, the University has elected to threaten and attack the credibility of the students instead of taking accountability.
