As the Associated Students of CSU elections loom right around
the corner, the ASCSU Senate took a stand on a different issue we
find extremely important.
ASCSU sent a bill to committee last night that would voice their
opposition to the academic bill of rights. ASCSU’s bill will be
voted on next week and would make a public and official stand
against the implementation of the academic bill of rights at CSU.
This official stand would tell our state government officials that
we, as a student body at CSU, are against the bill.
While ASCSU lacks any real power to do anything about the state
government’s bills or laws, it represents the student body and its
interests. While we could each write a personal letter to our state
officials voicing our views against the academic bill of rights, it
is unlikely to happen. The next best approach to making our voice
heard at the capitol is by having our student government, ASCSU,
take an official stand.
It is we as students, faculty and staff of CSU who the academic
bill of rights would hurt, and ASCSU would acknowledge this through
its bill. It is essential for our state government to hear our
opinions and ASCSU’s bill will make them heard.
We hope when it comes down to voting, hopefully ASCSU will do
what’s right and send the message to our state officials that CSU
students, faculty and staff are against the academic bill of
