Leaning into Conversations: Facilitating a Transparent and Inclusive Policy Revision Process in an Age of Unrest and Skepticism (ID 260)

In Fall 2016, Wake Forest University began a two year student conduct code revision process that prioritized comprehensiveness, transparency, and inclusivity in the midst of a tumultuous time on campus and in our nation. The context of the revision process included protests, polarizing speakers, increasing distrust of leaders and institutions, and fear that expression would be limited. Instead of rushing the changes from behind closed doors, we engaged the community openly and invited them into the policy review process.
