-President Shirvani (of Stan. State) has decided to remove winter term despite overwhelming student and faculty support to keep it

-President Shirvani and his administration have been spreading misinformation to the community and media about how professors are paid and the supposed benefits of getting rid of winter term

-In a nationally published article in the 'Chronicle of Higher Education' President Shirvani suggested that education is a "privilege and not a right"

-President Shirvani has not been willing to work with students and faculty and created an atmosphere of intimidation and oppression
