“This UC election is unlike many in recent campus history. In addition to voting between four tickets for UC President and Vice President, you also have the opportunity to vote on three referenda that address large campus issues. Do you support Harvard divesting its endowment from the fossil fuel industry in order to avert further environmental and human rights crises due to climate change? Do you agree that Harvard College should re-examine its sexual assault policies and practices? Do you support creating a social choice fund within Harvard’s endowment, thereby providing an opportunity for donors to choose whether their contributions to Harvard are invested for positive social impact? The four tickets and three referenda provide an unprecedented opportunity to directly engage with the UC election and to express your voice to the Harvard community and administration.
As students of Harvard College, we have an obligation to be active members of our Harvard community. Whether we can usually be found in the classroom, our houses and dorms, or out in the larger Cambridge community, Harvard’s academic and social policies directly influence our college experience. There are many campus issues at stake in this UC election: academic integrity policies, library hours, shuttle times, dining issues, sexual assault and disciplinary policies, House renewal, final exam hours, student organization funding policies, career resources, investment practices, and administration accessibility. If you care about any of these issues, please vote in the UC election starting Tuesday at noon!”
