Everett 1 Mendelsohn, professor of the History of Science, stressed the importance of student representation on the Committee for Rights and Responsibilities during a discussion on reform proposals for the CRR last night.
"I believe that in order for a CRR plan to be workable in this academic community, its procedures must be widely accepted," Mendelsohn told a group of students at South House.
The discussion, which was sponsored by the Student Center ad hoc committee, was held in response to the alternatives for the CRR that Dean Dunlop proposed at the last CRR meeting.
Dunlop's proposals included ideas to hand the function of the CRR over to the Administration Board and form a body of legal experts to decide which cases should be brought before the discipline committee.
Mendelsohn charged that Dunlop's alternatives maintain the same format of the present committee. He suggested that students make a list of minimal changes which would make the CRR acceptable to them and present the plan to the Faculty.
