appointed by Student Body President Dennis King, whose campaign I had worked for.

Researched alleged unfairness as part of a student-faculty team, recommended decision to full committee, and voted on other recommendations.
Taking our mandate seriously, I was forced by the evidence to often vote against the unsupportable claims of students. Equally revealing, when a professor had fallen short, he received no special sympathy from his peers at the table. We came to no decision (of around 100) that I did not support. This was definitely a level up: degrees and reputations were sometimes at risk. A relatively minor process, but exemplary of disparate viewpoints working together exceedingly well.
