FRIDAY @ 1:00: University Advisory Committee Meeting in Library 467 on The Former Classroom Building

Dear UPI:

Please join our fellow members at the University Advisory Committee Meeting tomorrow. A student member of the committee has issues around discussion, et cetera of Lech Walesa’s homophobic remarks on the agenda.

Below is what they sent and would like passed along.

Heads up and all the best,


Ashor Jajou, President of the NEIU SGA, and member of the University Advisory Committee (UAC), submitted a request to the UAC Executive Committee for this Friday’s UAC meeting, which will take place at 1:00 pm in the Center for Academic Writing, Library 467.

Ashor has requested to continue a discussion of the administration’s plan to commission a work of art to memorialize its process for rendering a decision on the name of the LWH building. Discussions and public comments in previous UAC meetings questioned the administration’s plan as well as its statements relative to discrimination and homophobia on our campus.

All faculty and staff and students are encouraged to attend this important meeting.
