Editors' Note [July 29, 2020 at 9:26 p.m.]: This correction has been edited for clarity. Additionally, the statement provided by Madeline Pawlak has been updated. An earlier version of their statement incorrectly claimed Collin Rees said Roys has never violated the pledge. Rees clarified, "Kelda Roys did indeed violate the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge... [and] acted quickly to remedy these violations, and returned them. Because she did so, she remains a pledge signer and in good standing with the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge."

To our readers,
Every student — regardless of their race, ethnicity, citizenship, gender, sexual orientation and the like — should have access to an adequate education. Unfortunately, Trump’s administration doesn’t seem to agree.
High school is a fundamental aspect to every student’s education.
In today’s classrooms, most students have probably seen and are familiar with signs saying, “This is a safe space,” or hear a professor utter the same words as they read through the course syllabus. But what does this mean, exactly?
The educational pipeline is a period of exploration of one’s identity, place in society and their academic interests. It is a phase where opinions are like clay in its initial stages — if well-shaped it can make a beautiful pot, but mishandling can result in long-lasting effects. The curriculum taught to children in school defines the opinions formed at this “early clay” phase but also sets them up for future academic exploration.
When headlines detailing the harrowing situation resulting in grad student John Brady’s death plastered the internet, UW-Madison quaked.
If language is an expression of identity, why does it often favor able-bodied folx?
Research suggests American Sign Language may be the third most-used language in the United States. Yet, UW-Madison offers only one course on sign language — despite its own emphasis of “the study of languages, literatures and cultures.”
For college students, the effects of non-apparent disabilities — like depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism and other health related illnesses — transcend simply managing symptoms.
The criminalization of people with disabilities, people of color and people of color with disabilities are some of the most heinous examples of systemic discrimination. Mass incarceration of these marginalized, and often underprivileged, populations funnels thousands into a broken system characterized by intolerance and abuse.
In November of 2018, Wisconsin saw a massive turnout in the midterm elections, resulting in the election of Democratic Governor Tony Evers over Republican incumbent Scott Walker in the gubernatorial race. With just over 1 percent of the vote, Evers’ win was narrow. As he celebrated his victory, Evers promised Wisconsin residents “change is coming” — and change has certainly been seen in the field of environmental policy in just a few months since the election.
With the growing predicament of climate change and its associated impacts, which were felt across Madison last summer with extensive, destructive flooding, it is important that leadership within the City of Madison continues to make sustainable development a priority.
Tucked between two lakes, UW-Madison has a lengthy and unique history of environmental activism and conservation.
As a school with a student body of over 40,000, the UW-Madison community has a huge opportunity to contribute to positive environmental change. The university has gone so far to raise awareness about the importance of living sustainably to even create an Office of Sustainability. Although resources through the Office of Sustainability are available to all students, not all students take advantage of them or are even aware of the office’s existence. As a large school with a proportionally large environmental impact, it is vital that students are aware of ways to live a more environmentally-friendly life. Not all commitments to sustainability need to be drastic. Some students think that they lack the time to create a more sustainable routine, or that it can be too expensive for students to buy products that are better for the environment, for example. But simple changes such as turning off lights, recycling, composting and using the bus can make a difference, and are easy to implement.
If the candidates for District 8 Alder are any indication, the future of local politics in Madison is clearly bright.
Paul Soglin is practically synonymous with Madison politics and has created quite a legacy for himself, serving as mayor for longer than anyone else in Madison’s history. He’s worked toward providing the city with affordable housing, improving public transit and hiring more women and minorities in the city during his 22-year tenure.
The Wisconsin Idea, according to UW-Madison’s website, seeks to “influence people’s lives beyond the boundaries of the classroom.” It is the state’s application of what the world calls a liberal arts education.
“Being underrepresented in your major can impact you in a lot of ways.”
As of October, boxes of affordable emergency contraceptives sit behind the counters at the student unions. There is no denying that these new additions to Badger Market break down barriers, allowing women at UW-Madison to take more control of their reproductive health. The decision to provide accessible and affordable emergency contraception on campus is the latest addition in a push to make women’s health services more accessible to students.
