The Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band, one of the most well known university bands in all the United States seems to have gotten into trouble one more time. According to the most recent news on the matter, the Stanford University has taken action against the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band, following violations of the policies of the university. The deeds of the students in the Marching Band of Stanford are in connection to use of alcohol and sexual harassment and the status quo is that Stanford partially suspends its band after accusations of not following the rules of the prestigious Californian institution of education.
Stanford Partially Suspends Its Band For Uni Policies Violation and the accusations seem to be pretty serious. According to the officials talking on behalf of the university from Palo Alto, they have started an investigation on the behavior of the students in connection to the Stanford policies. Until now, they have found that the students in the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band disrespected the uni policies regarding use of alcohol, controlled substances, sexual harassment and other like that.
According to the representatives of the Stanford University which have commented on this matter, the Marching Band of the Palo Alto university will not be allowed to play in the away sports events in the 2015 – 2016 academic year. This partial suspension includes the post season games.
However, the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band will have permission to play at home athletic competitions.
In addition to that, the students playing in the Stanford Marching Band will have to get training regarding the uni policies at Stanford and act in a way which will assure the fact that they have understood how things should look like if you are a Stanford student.
Moreover, the officials talking on behalf of the Stanford investigation on the Marching Band have said in a statement that no alcohol will be allowed at the events in which the band will be involved.
“We hope the band will use this outcome as a positive platform for further strengthening its culture and ensuring the band’s vibrancy and good stewardship in the years ahead.”
said Deborah Golder, who is in the position of dean of Residential Education. Golder has added that the Stanford Marching Band`s culture and accountability have been improved in the recent times and she thinks that this action will contribute to the progress of the musical group.
