IMMUTABILITY & AUDITABILITY: THE CRITICAL ELEMENTS IN PROPERTY RIGHTS REGISTRIES Abhishek Dobhal, Matthew Regan email@example.com Paper prepared for presentation at the “2016 WORLD BANK CONFERENCE ON LAND AND POVERTY” The World Bank Washington DC, March 1418, 2016 Copyright 2016 by author(s).

Purposebuilt to be a governmentgrade system of record for property rights that is (i) trustworthy/secure (ii) auditable and (iii) ubiquitously accessible. Especially relevant to developing countries that lack a sociopolitical foundation of tradition and trust. Epigraph has identified a recipe of technology assets and methodologies that utilizes blockchain technology to offer an original yet pragmatic solution to an old and chronic problem. A land and property administration registry built using a blockchain backbone creates immutable operational and financial processes, which can secure trillions of dollars in assets; resulting in an enormous social, economic and political impact globally by fulfilling the need for transparency and accountability. Key Words: Auditability, Blockchain, Immutability, Property Registry, Software as a Service (SaaS) 2 Introduction Epigraph introduces a new technology stack for securing property rights that represents a natural convergence of our physical and digital landscape. Establishing a trustworthy, reliable property rights registry is challenging in developing economies due to many competing (and often unethical) interests. This is especially true in the short term, when a foundation and tradition of trust are absent. True immutability and auditability, beyond the reach of actors involved in operating, governing and manipulating a property registry, have proven elusive to date. However, a system that embraces and achieves these critical success factors has the potential to disrupt property rights registration in developing countries and thereby significantly improve the lives of property owners and the economies in which they live and work. Traditional property registry software projects, generally started with the best of intentions, have routinely failed to bring about the change they promised their constituents. The failure of these systems to effect change can be traced to design flaws that ultimately leave them opaque to would be auditors while making the information they store overly pliable. Added to these shortcomings is the massive capital expenditure incurred to build and maintain these systems. Together, these factors lead to a software platform that never becomes the system of record, but has cost the government, its creditors and its citizens millions of dollars, and often years of missed opportunities. Unlike these traditional software implementations, which are backed by a purely centralized data store, Epigraph’s platform records its data using Factom, an open source, decentralized ledger secured by the Bitcoin blockchain. Factom’s immutable ledger allows Epigraph to write property registry information, which once written, cannot be erased. Guaranteed immutability opens the door to a software architecture that enables and ensure auditability, as data that cannot be modified can safely be made accessible without the risk of illicit changes. Epigraph then delivers this solution via a mobilefriendly, SaaS (Software as a Service) architecture, eliminating the costly capital expenditures typically required to launch and operate a property registry, while putting the application quite literally in the hands of those who need it. Game changed. 3 The Importance of Trustworthy Property Registries Systems for securing and managing property rights and land tenure have failed to keep pace with the demand for land itself. Land is the most valuable resource, particularly in developing countries, where a large portion of the population depends on it for their livelihood and where few viable alternative instruments for storing wealth exist. As the population around the world grows, people move to cities in search of better opportunities, significantly growing the demand for land. As a result of rising demand, land continues to become more scarce and valuable. Increasing globalization and the need to secure sources of food and fuel are also leading investors from around the world to developing countries in search of available land. Inferior administrative infrastructure and antiquated practices leave the door open for infringement of rights, particularly of the poor and vulnerable groups that own small parcels of land. In the best case scenario legitimate transactions are delayed, and in the worst case land is misappropriated. Security of tenure is essential for people to feel confident about their rights to property now and in the future (Latorre, 2015). Many international organizations have focused on securing property rights through effective land administration, with the view that it is one of the tenets of supporting growth activities in . developing countries (MCKechnie, n.d.). Land rights enforced by proper registration, and welldefined rules and regulations, benefit developing countries by: 1.

1 Unity 4 May 2015 2 Dear Father Engh and members of the administration: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to present a set of recommendations for immediate action to address critical issues related to the future of our university. While the recent acts of hate seem surprising to those who may identify as part of majority populations, marginalized students, staff and faculty at Santa Clara are not surprised. These acts have a decadeslong history on our campus and contribute to an environment contrary to the intent outlined in our mission statement. What we propose is in direct alignment with our schools belief in Conscience, Compassion, and Competence. We stress the urgency of this proposal because we believe that these improvements to Santa Clara’s academics, student and residential life, transparency, and recruitment processes will facilitate a better, safer environment for all students while better aligning our practices with the beliefs this institution was founded upon. By not standing in solidarity against hatred in all its forms or addressing these issues in a consistent, intentional and structured way, a salient portion of Santa Clara University’s mission statement remains unfulfilled. This requires bold leadership that is courageous enough to set the standard for higher education institutions across the nation. We see our recommendations from multiple perspectives. We recognize that these recommendations require dedication and full support from members of our community; however, we also recognize that diversity in all its forms, as well as safety and a positive campus climate are critical to the mission of our University. To this end, we ask for your immediate attention to the following recommendations, divided up into four categories: Academics, Student and Residence Life, Transparency, and Recruitment and Orientation. 3 Academics We advocate for a restructuring of our Core Curriculum in a way that better aligns with the values are committed to as a University and hold every student accountable for fulfilling. At Santa Clara University, we strive to educate the whole person. Here are some ways we can improve our efforts: CORE: ● Definition: ○ Reorganize the CORE diversity requirement from a one class requirement to two separate requirements. ○ These two requirements must be fulfilled through one course from the Ethnic Studies Program and one course from the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. ○ To accommodate this additional requirement, reduce the Pathways sequence by one class. ● Purpose: ○ SCU has a demonstrated commitment to diversity and social justice; however, we are currently lacking on this commitment. ■ Some classes within the diversity requirement fail to address intersecting forms of marginalization, as they exist on our campus. ■ Not everyone is fully benefitting from the intended purpose of this requirement. This is reflected in the interactions between marginalized and nonmarginalized groups on campus (hate speech, yik yak, etc.). ○ For many students, SCU is the first time they learn about the inequality of opportunity and become aware of their privilege. By expanding the diversity requirement, SCU is able to provide a foundation for these students to better understand multiple forms of privilege and how they affect others in the world and specifically within our community. Full Majors: ● Definition: ○ We advocate the formal creation of Ethnic Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies Departments with standalone major programs. Currently, these are the only two majors on campus that have companion major status. ● Purpose: ○ Santa Clara University was one of the first West Coast institutions to create an Ethnic Studies Program (1969); however, we are now one of the last to expand it into a standalone major. ○ We have also failed to expand the Women’s and Gender Studies program into a standalone major, which has been established since 1981. 4 ○ By failing to expand these two majors into standalone majors, SCU is sending a message to students, faculty, and the community contrary to our commitment to diversity and social justice. ○ We understand the proposed adjustment of the Core Curriculum warrants an increase in teaching capacity in both programs to meet the increased demand for classes. This demand not only necessitates each program become a department, but it also aligns with the University’s larger commitment to hiring more faculty of color as a key part of the 2020 plan. Diverse Faculty: ● Definition: ○ We advocate for an increase in hiring faculty of color as permanent, tenure track faculty through the Inclusive Excellence initiative. ○ 10% of faculty hired through the Inclusive Excellent initiative should be offered permanent tenure track positions. ○ As of now, most faculty of color are in the College of Arts and Sciences. We would like to see an increased focus on hiring faculty of color in the other colleges in addition to the Arts and Sciences. ● Purpose: ○ SCU has a remarkably small proportion of faculty and staff of color. Of particular concern is the percentage of black faculty on campus, which amounted to only 2.1% of full time faculty in 2011. This remained more or less stagnant since 2011. ○ In the last 8 years, SCU has established the Inclusive Excellence initiative in an attempt to increase the diversity of our faculty. However, though many faculty members have been hired through this program, few have actually been hired as permanent, tenure track faculty members. ○ Faculty of color have a unique perspective that benefits different types of students in different ways. For students from less diverse communities, having faculty of color increases the opportunity to learn about the minority experience in a variety of contexts. For minority students, faculty of color can serve as important role models and mentors in how to navigate the landscape of higher education. Cultures and Ideas Event Requirement: ● Definition: ○ We advocate adding a multicultural event requirement once a quarter to all C&I classes. This requirement would mandate students to attend an event that amplifies the voices of marginalized students on campus. ○ Examples include: Difficult Dialogues, MCC Culture Shows, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics sponsored events, etc. ○ The Office of Diversity and Inclusion would maintain the list of acceptable events. ● Purpose: 5 ○ The C&I courses are intended, but in some ways fail, to expose SCU students to a variety of cultural perspectives with an eye toward their development as global citizens on and off campus. ○ A campus engagement requirement would add to the capacity of our students to get involved with efforts that encourage diversity and inclusion on campus. ○ We realize that the topics for C&I classes vary. In order to make the events more relevant and effective, student organizations such as SCCAP, MCC, RRC, etc. can collaborate with professors to create events that touch on some of the topics discussed in class. EthicsPoint Reporting Information on Syllabi: ● Definition: ○ We advocate for all syllabi to contain information on the EthicsPoint anonymous reporting process for bias incidents and academic integrity reports. ● Purpose: ○ The EthicsPoint system currently allows for the anonymous reporting of classroom bias and academic integrity incidents, but isn't well understood by students. The addition of reporting information to syllabi would allow the University to better address bias incidents as well as academic integrity violations in the classroom. Student and Residence Life We advocate for a shift of our campus culture to better reflect the ideals of the the university. We advocate for Santa Clara University to implement programming both mandatory and voluntary to engage students in meaningful discussions and learning experiences both on campus and offcampus and before and during enrollment. Focus on Diversity/Sexual Assault/Alcohol in Online PreEnrollment Program: ● Definition: ○ Reframe the online preenrollment orientation (formerly AlcoholEdu and Haven) to include more focus on aspects of offcampus and oncampus bias incidents that students may face when enrolled. The program should include information on how students should respond to these incidents. ○ Provide engaging and educational content, which will align with a 4year dialogue that starts with the preenrollment program and continues on through senior year. ○ The conversations are to be carried out through the First and Second years of college with Perspectivebased conversations within Residential Learning Communities. ○ If the current online program does not contain a diversity component, we advocate that the school work to create and implement a diversity component.
