Staff Editorial: More transparency in disciplinary process

When a student organization or large community on campus faces sanctions for breaking GW policy, the lack of information about what occurred and what purpose the punishment serves is disheartening.

The disciplinary action that Pi Kappa Phi now faces may fit a crime, but we do not know what that crime was. The perpetuating trend of administrators handing down decisions without providing reasoning or justification for the punishments to the public illustrates a gaping lack of transparency in the process. We reiterate our call for more information regarding why prominent organizations on campus face disciplinary action, and the reasons behind administrators’ decisions.
