UNSW moves to tougher student conduct code

UNSW is circulating a consultation draft of a new student conduct code. This might make more difficult protests, like the recent chancellery occupation over university fossil fuel investments (CMM October 3).

A clause in both the existing and proposed codes requires students to comply with any reasonable direction /request by the university that “supports safety, good order and compliance with UNSW policy.” But the University now proposes an additional requirement that students, “express political and religious views in a lawful manner which do not risk the safety of individuals and/or unreasonably impinge on university business or the reasonable use of university resources.”

Should cover whatever management wants it to cover.
