Please take a quick look at the attached case which came out last week.  We were unsuccessful in defending this challenge to Spokane Colleges action in dismissing a student from a nursing program for alleged plagiarism.  This come down to whether academic dishonesty is an academic or disciplinary matter.  While we do not necessarily agree with the majority decision  (the dissent got it exactly right), we do now have a published decision that says you can achieve the outcome we want if you have the right WAC in place.  So, in addition to the other edits I am making for purposes of our meeting tomorrow, I will be drafting a couple of options to stick into the your new conduct code.
