UW should adopt 10-percent rule

In 2003, the United States Supreme Court ruled in its Grutter vs. Bollinger decision that universities can consider an applicant’s race as a part of a holistic review for admission. Racial quotas established by universities were previously ruled unconstitutional in a 1978 Supreme Court decision. Although affirmative action is undergoing a supreme court challenge, universities around the U.S. are still falling short of achieving representative diversity.

Obama’s racial comments should not be condoned

While 30,000 individuals saw fit to flood Bascom Hill last Thursday to see Presidnet Barack Obama, there were a number of staff and students that weren’t so enamored. The Daily Cardinal ran an article earlier this week discussing Professor Mayer’s and Professor Downs’ opposition to the visit; namely, political events taking place on school grounds were prohibited by the university’s own policies (an argument which Vice Chancellor for University Relations Vince Sweeney thought fit to completely sweep under the rug), classes were cancelled for which students had already paid and professors were forced to take a vacation day during the event. In addition, the requirement that students provide their phone numbers to the campaign to receive a ticket was controversial.
