In response to the outcry over the recent decisions made by the administration and the Board of Trustees on issues such as the Rose Art Museum and study abroad, President Reinharz himself has consented to a completely open forum for all students to be held today, Wednesday, January 28th, at 11am in the Hassenfeld Conference Room in Upper Sherman. This is everyone’s chance to ask Jehuda where the transparency has been and what other drastic cost-cutting measures might be in the works that we don’t know about. I highly encourage everyone to attend and to be prepared with questions. If for some reason you cannot attend, feel free to leave a question in the comments space or to post it on email@example.com, and someone will make sure it’s addressed. Opportunities like this happen very rarely, so again, please come if you can and show the President that the voices calling for a role in this crisis are unified and growing.
The original press release from Student Union Director of Communications Jamie Ansorge is below the fold.
To Members of the Brandeis Community,
Today Union President Jason Gray spoke with University President Reinharz about how to best involve students in the budget cut process. Jason suggested an open forum would be a good first step. Jehuda agreed, and because of his availability, the forum must be held tomorrow (Wednesday morning) at 11AM.
So please, join the facebook event page, and invite all of your friends immediately. Hopefully we will get a good turnout to show Jehuda how much the student body cares.
Please forward this to other mailing lists.
I hope to see many of you there.
Director of Communications
Student Union Executive Board
