Student Liaison David Arreola spoke on the change to the Academic Honesty policy.  Traditionally, Deans have final say, in terms of consequences, after a hearing in front of a committee.  After deciding the rules dealing with Academic Dishonesty were too vague,  the committee is now the final decider.
