REXBURG, Idaho (ABC4 News) – Students at BYU-Idaho, owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, demonstrated Wednesday against certain alleged practices of its Honor Code Office.
Students’ list of demands for BYU-Idaho administration includes sensitivity training for Honor Code personnel for interactions with “people of color, the LGBTQA+ community, women,” and dealing with sexual assault.
Students also said they want a “statute of limitations,” demanding that no one is investigated for alleged infractions that occurred 365 days before the investigation begins.
BYU-Idaho students also demanded the right to record any interactions with the Honor Code Office. The students also demanded that if a suspected violator is cleared by his or her ecclesiastical leader and is able to hold a current temple recommend, that person may not be suspended or expelled for an infraction.
BYU-Idaho administrators have not commented on the demonstration.
The march comes after renewed scrutiny on the Honor Code Office at Brigham Young University in Provo. A demonstration is planned to protest that school’s Honor Code Office’s practices Friday, April 12.
