  1. "Pass the Mic" is a new event series hosted by ASPC, where members of our community are invited to share their stories, thoughts, or experiences. We aim to create an open space where marginalized voices can be heard, and where people who wouldn’t usually be considered “speakers” can speak out to the community. The first event will focus on immigration:

    "Pass the Mic" - Immigration Stories This Friday (Feb 27th), 8~9:30PM @Women's Union. The topic of immigration has been represented by the media through a single image: A Mexican crossing the border. But the truth is that in the US, including Pomona's campus, you will find immigrants from all over the world, every continent. Each story is different. Come listen to the stories of your peers and classmates, and share your own, as we Pass the Mic.

  2. After many surveys, awarded Kindles, and nitty-gritty research, the Curriculum Committee now delivers to you the Executive Summary of our report on General Education (see link below). Please engage with this one page summary. From here, the CC urges our community to brainstorm ways to improve Pomona students' writing requirement, breadth of study, critical thinking, and engagement with issues of diversity. Do you have a thoughtful proposal for how to change GE, logistics included? If so, email Curriculum Committee (Curriculumcommittee@pomona.edu) with your proposal from now until March 6, 2015. Feel free to contact Commissioner Emily Glass (academic@aspc.pomona.edu) with any questions, comments, and/or concerns.

  4. In light of the situation of bike thefts on campus, students are encouraged to sign this petition urging the college administration to take stronger measures to ensure safety of student bikes on campus.

  5. The Senate voted 8-0 on February 6th to pass the following resolution, which urges the college to change the language of gender-neutral restrooms to state gender-inclusive, and to make the bathrooms on the second floor of the SCC into gender-inclusive restrooms.

    WHEREAS many individuals no longer identify with the traditional gender binary descriptions of male and female; and

    WHEREAS restrooms should be a personal space where one can feel safe and comfortable, which sex-segregated restrooms do not provide for those who do not identify with the gender binary; and

    WHEREAS ‘gender-neutral’ no longer accurately describes all individuals who don’t fall in the traditional gender binary; and

    WHEREAS the Smith Campus Center is a public space on campus intended to welcome all students, faculty, staff, and guests;

    THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Senate of the Associated Students of Pomona College, on behalf of the entire student body, expresses its deepest support and calls on the college to change the second-level restrooms of the Smith Campus Center to gender-inclusive restrooms as soon as possible.

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we support the transition in language from ‘gender-neutral’ to ‘gender-inclusive’ restrooms.
