In today’s meeting, the ASPC Senate approved the below resolution. I am also sending the resolution to the full Board of Trustees. Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or comments.
Resolution of the Senate of the Associated Students of Pomona College
March 5, 2012
WHEREAS a complaint to the Chair of the Board of Trustees prompted an investigation into the work authorization papers of all college employees that led to the termination of seventeen employees; and
WHEREAS the process by which the Board of Trustees leadership dealt with the complaint and subsequent investigation is still unclear to students; and
WHEREAS the Board of Trustees is currently writing a report on the details of how the Board of Trustees leadership dealt with the complaint; and
WHEREAS students respect the need for whistleblower complaints to be kept anonymous;
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Senate of the Associated Students of Pomona College, on behalf of the student body, calls on the Board of Trustees to release to the college community the internal report on the events surrounding the worker terminations as soon as it is completed. We call on the Board of Trustees to release the report in full, with the exception of details that identify the person who made the complaint.
