This Day in Daily History

Dems oppose 'U' nonacademic code of conduct

Nov. 21, 1986 - The Ann Arbor Democratic Party has decided to oppose the University's proposed code of nonacademic conduct, which would include stricter rules on political protest by students.

"Because five out of the University's eight regents are Democrats, I think that they will be very interested in this decision," said Joseph Kraus, a member of the Michigan Student Assembly's Student Rights Committee.

The question of how the University should deal with political dissent by students has been the most hotly debated issue.

The council has still not taken an official stance against sanctions for political dissent, but the decision is expected in the next couple of weeks - a potential major victory for code opponents.

The University may be able to use sanctions or the possibility of sanctions to discourage or prevent campus protests, a move that members of the Ann Arbor Democratic Party oppose.
