Last Monday, UW-Madison’s athletic body sent out a survey to club and intramural athletes that includes some questions considered to be transphobic. This survey, sent as part of an ongoing ten-university study conducted by a University of Indiana researcher, comes as the Wisconsin assembly passed bills last week limiting the rights of transgender young people in Wisconsin. The University has said there was no relationship between the two, and maintained the survey doesn’t reflect UW-Madison’s values. The current university policy allows athletes to participate in gendered sports that align with their identity. In this episode, co-producer Gavin Escott talks with The Daily Cardinal’s campus news editor Liam Beran about the study and its fallout among students.
On this week’s Cardinal Call, contributors Heewone Lim and Gavin Escott discussed accessible transit on campus with Daily Cardinal reporter Sanjeev Anand.
Edit for clarity: Gavin states that the state legislature passed a state budget a few weeks ago but meant to say that it was two months ago. On this week’s Cardinal Call, contributors Heewone Lim and Gavin Escott talked to two Daily Cardinal reporters about diversity, equity and inclusion efforts at UW-Madison. DEI work will continue on campus despite Republican pressure to defund the university.
It’s back to school season! This year, we have two UW-Madison students co-producing Cardinal Call, a feature created by student journalists at the Daily Cardinal. Our reporters Heewone Lim and Gavin Escott sat down with two executive members of the Daily Cardinal to bring you the scoop on what’s been happening on campus. They discussed stories the Cardinal is looking forward to reporting on later this year.
