Post-occupation, conduct hearings make their way to CSU Sacramento

According to an email we received from a student involved in the recent CSU Sacramento occupation, at least one student so far has been charged with violating the campus code of conduct on multiple counts.  Can we look forward to a series of fatuous show trials as we’ve seen on UC campuses over the past year and a half?

Dear ✖✖✖,

I am writing to inform you that I have received a report that you have violated university policy.  If true, this is a violation of the following titles of the California Administrative Code:


2010.16 Published Regulations: Violation of any published University policy, rule, regulation or presidential order.


2010.17 Failure to Comply: Failure to comply with directions of, or interference with, any University official or any public safety officer while acting in the performance of his/her duties. 


2010.18 Laws: Any act chargeable as a violation of federal, state, or local law that poses a substantial threat to the safety or well-being of members of the University community, to property within the University community or poses a significant threat of disruption or interference with University operations.

I need to discuss this report with you.  Please contact Jodi Howe no later than 7 days from the date of this letter to schedule a meeting with me.  If I do not hear from you by that date, a hold will be placed on your records.  You may be accompanied by another individual to serve as an advisor at the meeting; however, attorneys are precluded from participating in this process.

We can be reached at (916) 278-6060.  Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.


Leonard Valdez

Director of Student Conduct

  1. As CSUS may not have the same wherewithal (I don’t really know), I wonder if anyone from CRP or from UCD law school might, as an act of solidarity, be willing to serve as adviser? I would happily contribute to transportation costs or what have you.

  2. Great idea — we’re actually in contact with some of the CSUS occupiers and have put them in touch with CRP. If there are folks at UCD who might be able to help as well, shoot us an email and we’ll pass along the CSUS occupiers’ info.
