This is technically true.


But in light of the ultimate outcome of the Minnesota case recently, I think a discussion is more than warranted over which burden of proof is appropriate for university hearings/panels to use when considering punishment that removes student status (suspension, expulsion).


Put me in the camp who says that a simple preponderance is clearly unacceptable.

You may be in a very small minority.

I'd like to think reasonable people are always the majority, but lately that does not seem to be the case.


Very few people support the idea of letting a school kick a male student out simply because an all or mostly female hearing panel thinks "yeah, he probably raped her, even though the evidence is entirely hearsay".
