UC Bars Student Governments From State Political Campaigns
The University of California has drafted a policy explicitly forbidding student governments from lobbying on state ballot initiatives, setting the university on a collision course with UC Berkeley student government leaders.
GA President Jessica Quindel called the new system-wide policy “unacceptable.” “How is it that when it comes to the legislature we can lobby all we want, but with ballot initiatives which have equal impact on students we lose our right to meaningful speech?” she asked.
