EDITORIAL: Reevaluate Student Union involvement in protests

Over the last several weeks, student groups such as Ford Hall 2015 and the Brandeis Asian American Task Force have sent direct letters to the University’s top administrators which included lists of specific demands and a short deadline by which they must be met.  This board has often condemned a sense of student apathy toward administrative dealings and is pleased to see these protest movements as evidence to the contrary.

EDITORIAL: Continue campus dialogue on race issues

In 1969, approximately 70 students gathered in Ford Hall to demand greater representation for black students campus-wide, according to the Department of African and Afro-American Studies. On Friday, students gathered in the Bernstein-Marcus Administration Building as part of the Ford Hall 2015 movement, demanding a swift University response to institutionalized racism on campus, invoking the same imagery and sentiment as those who occupied Ford Hall in 1969.

EDITORIAL: Maintain careful eye on A-board proceedings

On Friday, students voted in favor of an amendment to the Undergraduate Student Union constitution that will expand the size and term lengths of the Allocations Board members, including adding four members to the board, granting year-long and three semester terms to board members and clarifying that the chairperson of the board will be selected to serve a maximum of one term by A-Board members. Since student groups raised concerns over the club funding decision-making process, the Student Union has taken clear action to reform the A-Board.
