As the final verdict of the Supreme Court looms, we implore fellow students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to reflect on how an overturn of Roe v. Wade impacts your body, as well as the bodies of your peers.
The Board of Regents has selected a new president to lead the University of Wisconsin System Schools — and the decision was made behind closed doors.
The return of in-person classes is a necessary step forward, but a more cautious plan is needed to ensure student, staff and faculty safety.
Entering the school year, students and faculty alike were anxious for how the semester would look. How would the pandemic affect day-to-day campus operations, and could we return “safely” back to campus?
At the Daily Cardinal, we stand with survivors of sexual assault; finding it critical that we — and others — do the same with our words and actions, we can no longer support Ayomi Obuseh.
The Editorial Board dives into facets of labor culture — parsing through the ways in which it has neglected systemic inequalities, exploited youth, perpetuated cycles of oppression and manifested in our immediate environment.
UW-Madison must take strong action in the best interests of students that are left out of aid and scholarship conversations.
UW is having a serious crisis of character regarding this issue and it is questionable as to why they support progressive ideals within the community, yet benefit directly from what is essentially legal slavery.
Everyone capable of voting in local elections should, and every single member of the city and campus community should stay aware of local politics. After all, change starts from the ground up.

To those not convinced that their vote carries enough weight, or to those that are not compelled to act this election day, we urge you: Vote for those who cannot — their lives, that are equally as intrinsic and dignified as your own, deserve nothing less.
From our systems of policing and criminal justice to the two-party system at large, the structures that govern our lives at the local and national level must be re-evaluated, rebuilt and reorganized.
The UW-Madison BIPOC Coalition fights to ensure that all BIPOC students feel heard, respected, and welcome on this campus, yet have been repeatedly ignored by UW Administration — continuing a cycle of institutionalized oppression of marginalized voices.
The “American Dream” is dependent on each person, and to believe it’s a one-size-fits-all guide to being a citizen is exactly why revoking DACA will fail to provide for the folx it is made for. It’s failing the folx that are seeking opportunity and access, by revoking their ability to earn their degree, have a job and live a full life.
Finding new ways to better students’ educational experiences certainly requires dedication to research and policy change — overhauling the American education system as we know it is no small task. But just because it may be difficult to restructure our schools in a way that is equitable and beneficial for everyone doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.
