 At Florida Atlantic University this semester, Stop Owlcatraz! demonstrators who contributed to the “ongoing distraction” that forced GEO Group to withdraw their twelve year FAU-GEO stadium naming rights contract were advised to not only read the Code of  Conduct, but to memorize it. The students diligently complied and discovered that the administration blatantly disregarded their own standards of conduct. University officials and representatives must be held to the same standards as the students they serve. In the spirit of fairness and equality, this letter addresses the Administration’s violations of FAU’s Code of Conduct.---Dear President Saunders, the Dean of Students Office, and the Board of Trustees,Thank you for meeting with us on multiple occasions in the past seven weeks. As discussed, the purpose of meeting was to investigate your alleged involvement in conduct that may have constituted a violation of Florida Atlantic University’s Code of Conduct, Regulation 4.007. It was alleged that you were involved in several incidents during the Spring 2013 semester involving (i) interference with academic freedom and freedom of  speech of any member of the University, (ii) providing false information to University officials, (iii) posting of commercial advertising or engaging in commercial activity without appropriate authorization, (iv) endangering the health, safety or welfare of members or  guests of the University, (v) any act which could constitute a violation of any local law or  ordinance, State of Florida or Federal law, and (vi) knowingly falsifying, distorting or  misrepresenting information before a student conduct proceeding.The University supports and encourages your right to administer over students and faithfully perform your duties as entrusted members of the Florida Atlantic community, subject to University regulations, policies, and procedures. Your behavior throughout the Spring 2013 semester has continuously disregarded the well-being of the University community. Based on reports, as well as discussions with witnesses and University officials, what began as a well-intentioned acceptance of a donation escalated into an inappropriate and unprecedented naming-rights contract with human rights violator and private prison profiteer the GEO Group. Following that decision, your attempts to silence and/or  intimidate students, faculty, and staff interfered with our right to speak freely. Your actions endangered and injured one student in particular, and jeopardized the safety and integrity of many members of the University. When your actions were called into question, you chose to omit and manipulate evidence to support your claims instead of taking responsibility for your actions. The University members investigated on April 5 had their  sworn witness statements used against them, which constitutes another violation of the Code of Conduct. Furthermore, the conclusion presented in the letter from the Dean of  Students office regarding the proceedings entirely ignored the testimony presented and
