EDITORIAL: New UP requirement fits CMU's core values, will not make it longer for students to graduate

(04/14/17 3:30pm)

At its April 4 meeting, the Academic Senate at Central Michigan University voted to add a new University Program category requiring students to take a course in non-race based discrimination.We think this addition will benefit students and the entire Central Michigan University community by creating a more inclusive campus — one of the university's core values.The new category, subgroup IV-D, will require students starting in 2019 to take a class focused on discrimination issues regarding gender, sex, identity, sexuality, sexual orientation, religion or disability.The new requirement will not force students to take additional general education credits — which was many academic senators' major critique earlier this semester.

EDITORIAL: Unaffiliated fraternities diminish standards set by Greeks, university

For fraternities and sororities at Central Michigan University, the beginning of Spring marks a special time of the year: Greek Week. The annual week-long fundraiser, April 2-7, will bring social Greek organizations together as they compete to raise money and awareness for a charitable cause. We think Greek Week epitomizes what it means to be a member of a Greek organization — unity and philanthropy. In that spirit of unity, we also think Greek Week is a good time to discuss an important issue that affects the image of the university and Greek community. There are five "unaffiliated fraternities" that operate outside the purview of CMU – Alpha Chi Rho, Theta Chi, Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta Chi. According to the university website, these five fraternities are no longer recognized by CMU due to actions by members that violated established policies.

Sue Guevara’s Chippewas have not made the NCAA Tournament since XXX, but the 10-year head coach has turned the program into the embodiment of “championship culture.”CMU fell short of the big dance this season, unexpectedly losing to Western Michigan University in the XXXX round of the Mid-American Conference Tournament.

EDITORIAL: No Joking Matter

We lose compassion when we forget history. We lose empathy for others when we, for whatever reasons, become desensitized to the seriousness of what other people, who may not look, speak or think like us, undergo.Becoming numb happens overtime and it's hard to notice when it's happening.It shows on social media in the bigoted, stereotypical “jokes” of trolls and viral memes.

EDITORIAL: Gorsuch nomination is encouraging for those who feared the worst

(02/06/17 2:40am)

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump answered one of the largest questions coming into his presidency: Who will he appoint to fill the late Anton Scalia's seat on our nation's highest court?We believe President Trump's pick, 10th Circuit Appellate Court Judge Neil Gorsuch, is not necessarily a win or loss for either Democrats or Republicans.
