KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Tennessee’s Vice Chancellor for Student Life is proposing changes to the student conduct code that include more sanctions meant to educate rather than punish.

Vince Carilli told the Knoxville News Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1G4fHNU ) he wants UT to be “in step with best practices.” He said the school has more options than the criminal justice system when it comes to sanctions. In addition to warnings, probation, suspension and expulsion, the school could require essays for personal reflection, for example.

Carilli is also proposing changes to make the hearing and appeals process faster and more consistent.

He is asking for feedback on the proposed changes from campus groups that include the Faculty Senate before seeking final approval.
