University Senator Tiffany Dockery Resigns
Written by Bwog Staff
Earlier this evening, University Senator Tiffany Dockery CC ’09 resigned her seat in a letter to the Student Affairs Caucus. Dockery, last year’s BSO president, was on trial for impeachment for not attending enough meetings of the Student Affairs Caucus.
In her letter, Dockery lists several reasons for her resignation, including her belief that “there are certain structural issues that preclude me from achieving many of the things that I aimed to do as a progressive student of color.”
She also addressed her repeated absences, citing personal family reasons as well as over-commitment. She closed by saying “I have displayed my commitment to the Senate through my work in the Columbia College Student Council.”
UPDATE 12:38 AM: Earlier, we had mistakenly posted the entirely of the Dockery email when we had only meant to excerpt quotes. The email was only on the site for about 45 minutes, and we removed it as soon as we realized our mistake. We sincerely apologize that it was posted at all. — Ed.
