Middlebury Announces More Unspecified Discipline for Students Over Mob Attack

Middlebury Announces More Unspecified Discipline for Students Over Mob Attack

Why is the punishment such a secret?

This is the second time Middlebury College has announced disciplinary actions without specifying what the actions are.

Middlebury Announces More Disciplinary Actions Over Charles Murray Student Riot

Middlebury College in Vermont has again announced that it has disciplined students over their behavior during an event featuring conservative author Charles Murray on March 2.

The school announced late last month that it had disciplined more than 30 students for their behavior. Now, as then, the school declined to give details about what that discipline looked like. In the latest announcement, the school said that it had, in April, disciplined a total of 41 students.

This week’s cases were heard in a group hearing Thursday night before the Community Judicial Board (CJB) of Middlebury College. The CJB is empaneled from a pool of trained community members and, when hearing a case, consists of four students, two faculty members, and two members of the staff,” the school announced. “The CJB concluded that the second stage of the protest behaviors merited stronger sanctions. These decisions bring to 60 the number of students who have received College discipline since the disruption of Murray’s talk.”

I assume the actions are unspecified because they’re non-existent or insubstantial.

The “punishment” probably consisted of reducing the students’ extra credit points given for demonstrating from 50 to 25 points. I doubt it even rose to the level of a “mandatory diversity class”. Then again, I’m cynical about them “punishing” students for taking an action that the school tacitly approved of.

Time to raze that Dingleberry University.
