Crisis Text Line at Penn

Authored by: Eric Tepper

On Thursday, I attended a presentation by Liz Eddy, the Director of Communications and head of partnerships for CTL, to a Faculty Senate Committee. She described how CTL works, how counselors are trained, CTL data, and what CTL partnerships look like. Bill Alexander and Max King were present at the meeting as well. Penn is currently working on finalizing additional support from a company with trained counselors and has raised liability and integration concerns regarding CTL at Penn. I followed up with Liz after the meeting and we are going to explore the best options for Penn.

Women’s Only Gym Hours

Authored by: Aliya Farmanali

On Wednesday, I met with Katie Gold, Assistant Director for Aquatics and Risk Management for Penn Rec, to discuss the possibility of having women-only hours a couple of times a week for a section of one of the gyms on campus, an option which some Muslim and Orthodox Jewish women have expressed interest in. Ms. Gold was initially against this idea, and by the end of our meeting, she still was not optimistic about the possibility of creating a space just for women. She emphasized that she did not want to restrict other people from using the limited space in Pottruck and said that other groups might also demand their own spaces if women’s hours were established, which would be problematic. Additionally, Ms. Gold said that if women’s hours were established, she would not have the resources to police who is allowed into the space for women during those times. She was also concerned about how this policing might affect non-cisgender individuals. However, Ms. Gold said that there might be a slight possibility that the fourth floor of Pottruck could be made into a rental space for any group on campus on weekdays from 10:30 PM to 11:30 PM. She suggested that perhaps the UA would have the resources to figure out this issue of policing or that perhaps groups would have to police this space themselves. Ms. Gold asked to be contacted before the end of this semester with more details on how the policing would work out, if this project is to have any chance of going forward.

360-Degree View of Rooms

Authored by: Michael Krone

 

On November 10, Sam Shea and I spoke with Lucas Quagliata, Craig Kampes (Assistant Vice President Communications and Marketing Enrollment Management & Student Success), and Rose Thomas from Drexel University’s administration to discuss their process for going about getting 360-degree interior room views. They used a service known called 360 Panotour, which is a third-party contractor that does many real estate projects.

 

They also informed us of a new tool that they offer that utilizes 360-degree video (by way of a 360-degree camera mount) for other campus locations not featured on tours. I hope to bring this project back to RSAB to see if they have made progress with J2 to get the photos done, and then to Business Services to market it. They suggested talking to RAs/GAs because they might have the most nicely decorated rooms for view, but that might pose an issue because sometimes RA/GA rooms are not equipped in the same way as the freshman rooms.

Discussion Papers

Office of Student Disability Services

Authored by: Gabrielle Jackson

Background:

The Office of Student Disability Services (SDS) is a department at Penn that offers resources to students with disabilities. Most people’s connection with SDS is through the Weingarden Center. However, SDS also offers services to students with physical disabilities and temporary injuries.

I am interested in establishing a connection between the UA and SDS, because one does not currently exist, which means an important population of Penn’s physically and learning disabled community is not represented. Thus, earlier this week, I emailed an assistant director of SDS Grace Conte, asking her on what she thought of establishing such a connection. She seemed excited about the project and then passed me on to the SDS Director, Dr. Susan Shapiro.

The aspect of SDS that I have been focusing on has been on accommodation for students with temporary injuries. My reasoning is twofold: The Americans with Disabilities Act does not recognize temporary injuries, like broken bones, therefore Penn is not legally obligated to provide services to people with these injuries, and these injuries are handled on a case-by-case basis. Also, since temporary injuries are usually unplanned, I feel like people who get them are rarely aware of how to determine what services Penn does have to offer in this department and become overwhelmed by the burden of having an injury.

My plan was to first get a better idea of what SDS has to offer, because their website is pretty uninformative and to go from there, finding a way to consolidate the information I acquired and finding a way to make it more accessible to students.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Do you think focusing on temporary injuries, for now, is the correct route to go, or should the focus be more on Weingarten services?
  2. Have you, or any of your friends had a temporary injury, and if so what problems have you/they encountered that should get addressed?
  3. By what means should we increase SDS visibility? (infographic, media campaign, etc.)

“Even At Penn” Video Series

Authored by: Jordan Andrews and Natasha Menon

After meeting with interim UA advisor Rodney Robinson, we realized that a similar idea was discussed at a meeting between VPUL and cultural umbrella organizations on campus. They want to create a video series similar to the TAP modules to make incoming freshmen aware of resources on campus. Additionally, two years ago a video series was released called “My Safe Space at Penn” that highlighted the cultural houses on campus that are available to students. We discussed potentially working with VPUL and the 5B organizations to create a unique video series that is more inclusive of intersectional identities than “My Safe Space at Penn” was. Rodney is going to contact VPUL and those who worked on “My Safe Space at Penn” and get back to us with how we should proceed.

Old Business

Amending the University’s Religious Observance Policy

Authored by Samara Wyant

 

Background:

Last November, the Daily Pennsylvanian published an article titled “Religious students made to choose between holidays and grades.” It highlighted the dilemma faced by many students at Penn who are forced to choose between their religious practice and their academic commitments. I have decided to look into ways that the University could better shape its religious practice policy to accommodate the needs of more students of more religions.

 

After talking to many students, I have found that there are a few issues with the current policy on religious observance. Most students that I consulted with said that if the academic policies were different, they would observe the holidays differently. In other words, students’ religious experience/observance is impeded by university policies. I also found that there are some professors and departments that do not comply with the current religious observance policy. For example, a computer science course held one of its exams directly after Yom Kippur ended. Other students have reported that professors who drop one exam score have said that if they must miss a test for religious purposes, that is the score that will be dropped. Other students who are willing/would prefer to miss class and make up the work on holidays have in practice not had the option due to labs or short quizzes.

                                                                  

These examples are only a few instances in which students have had to choose between religious observance and academics. The current policies put students who choose to celebrate religious holidays at a disadvantage, so it is time to revise the current policy to better accommodate all students. Students at a university level should not feel as though their school is impeding on their religious practices. As of right now, “no examinations may be given and no assigned work may be required” on “Christmas, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, the first two days of Passover, and Good Friday.” For the holidays of “Sukkot, the last two days of Passover, Shavuot, Shemini Atzerat and Simchat Torah, as well as Chinese New Year, the Muslim New Year, Diwali, and the Islamic holidays Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha, … alternative arrangements convenient to both students and faculty can be made at the earliest opportunity” (From the Provost’s Policy on Secular and Religious holidays). More specific guidelines must be laid out regarding these other holidays in order to protect the religious freedoms of students.

 

To determine what the needs of the students are, I would like to release a survey that asks the following questions:

 

1.        With what religion do you identify?

2.        Do you feel as if your religious practice has been negatively affected by academics? (Yes/No)

3.        Have you ever had to take a test, quiz, turn in an assignment, or complete a lab on a day in which you would otherwise not attend class due to religious practice? (Yes/No) Please specify.

4.        Do you feel as if your professors are accommodating and understanding of your religious needs?

5.        How could the university better serve the needs of your religious community, in terms of academic policies?

 

The UA has, in the past, tried to amend the University Policy on Secular and Religious Holidays, so the best way to move forward from here is by taking this task on in baby steps. (You can find a report on a past attempt here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pSksIMHy-IG554Kh97I8K31ApxMeNBdJ069HRbLXbZo/edit)

 

Discussion Questions:

1.     How can we change the above survey to make it more effective in determining the needs of students?

2.     How can we best inform faculty about the current policy and make it work to accommodate the students?

3.     Is there a viable course of action with this project? What is the best way to move forward and create meaningful change?

PVP Advisory Group

Authored by: Jordan Andrews

On Wednesday, I attended the second meeting of the semester, at which the PVP Student Advisory Group discussed the Task Force that was announced by President Gutmann and Provost Price. Members voiced that the term "Task Force" is off-putting and ambiguous in its aims, if the purpose of the group is to protect victims. The desire for more input from student organizations on campus was also brought up, as some members feel that a new Task Force is unnecessary, given the many groups like MARS, PAVE, ASAP, etc. that could be redirected to work closer with each other and the University. After speaking with the Director of Sexual Violence Prevention and Education, Jessica Mertz, I received meeting notes from the first meeting, in which the group discussed PVP's semester-long goals.

Student Financial Services Advisory Board Meeting

Authored by: Michael Krone

 

On November 9, I sat in the SFSAB meeting for Sam, and we discussed a number of issues relating to SFS. We discussed a calendar feature that would be added to their website with a comprehensive list of registration and financial aid deadlines, and how to improve this calendar to be synced with Google calendar or iCal. We briefly touched on the Swipe Out Hunger meal swipe donation plan for the end of the semester, and clarified some inconsistencies about the meal swipe donation issue. There will be a more standardized program for high need students to receive meal vouchers over the Thanksgiving Break, and students will still have the opportunity to donate swipes to Philabundance via Swipe Out Hunger.

Residential Services Advisory Board Meeting

Authored by: Elena Hoffman, Lawrence Perry, and Maria Curry

Items discussed at this week’s RSAB meeting were the lockout key/PennCard system, air conditioning in student dorms, retention in college houses, and on-campus storage spaces for Penn residents during the school year. On the topic of the lockout key system, we discussed the new Salto system, which would completely eliminate the need for keys to unlock dorm rooms. In this new system, if a student loses their PennCard, they will be issued a temporary card to access their dorm, but no other building on campus. We debated over the fees that a student will face if this situation occurs, and it will be an item on our agenda moving forward. Additionally,we spoke about adding air conditioning to all college houses (particularly KCECH, Gregory, and DuBois), and though the logistics of actually making this a reality are very, very difficult, it isn’t being written off just yet. In regards to college house retention, we spoke about making it possible for residents of high rises and college houses to keep their room for all 2-4 years, and the administrators appeared to be on board for the most part. Finally, we were informed that all Penn storage is run by an off-campus organization, and for this reason, it would be difficult to open up the possibility of storing unwanted dorm room furniture there. However, the administrators present appeared to be open-minded about the possibility of looking into making furniture storage something residents of tiny Quad dorms can take advantage of to free up space.


Minutes


  1. Roll Call
  2. Open Forum
  1. Cal - Solidarity message doesn’t completely represent us as a body. The Statesman released an article teasing the way people reacted to Trump’s election. Received two death threats this week. Tired of people being complicit in supporting Trump and his agenda. Ask yourself, would you want to be a black student at this university right now?
  2. Tunmise - I have to second everything that Cal said. He got two death threats today. People are discussing being allies, and some people are never going to experience what it is like being a Black student at this University. I spent a lot of time dealing with Friday’s situation. You have the UMOJA Co-Chair and UMOJA Communications Director on the body, and Exec shouldn’t have taken responsibility. People were crying, and the response from the UA was that they were working with administrators. Checking up on people is reaching out to people who are actually in this situation and making them feel okay. For everyone who has someone affected this week by this election, really evaluate how these people are and how you are being there for these individuals. I feel like a lot of stuff is fake and a lot of people are missing the point.
  3. Cal - Calling this out is not divisive. This is how we have been feeling for a very long time. We can use this to improve as a body.
  4. Kat - What you both said was really moving, and those of us that aren’t Black students at this university won’t or can’t understand. I was speaking with Rodney Robinson about how to get communication across to this group, and I didn’t want to reflect that the UA was taking the lead or doing things outside of UMOJA’s efforts. I just wanted to reach out to the people in the group. I apologize for that.
  5. Daniel Tancredi - I don’t understand how my objective opinion of what is going on this campus came across as satire. I didn’t mean for it to come across as satire. I don’t want you to think that I am against you in describing how the university handled the post-election situation.
  6. Kat - We need to be respectful toward people of color at this university right now, especially during a difficult time.
  7. Tunmise - This is my life.
  8. Cal - If you feel disrespected with my personal issues with the article, imagine how I feel reading an article that mocks the way we breathe. I would take down the article and release an apology immediately. This is not politics, this is real. I’m not a student anymore.
  9. Gabbi - I want to talk about one of the events that was so-called “objectively covered” by the Statesman which featured faculty directors and puppies and questions about the results of the election. As an RA, it was my job to help diffuse the situation and address their confusion. The way the Statesman covered it and shared it was extremely disrespectful. Because of the way they shared it, other organizations such as Breitbart shared the article. The way the rest of the situation played out was tone deaf and disrespectful. I do not agree with what you just said. It would be best that you take the post down.
  10. Kaylee - Could someone briefly speak to what the article said? Was the UA’s public message what people had issue with?
  11. Tunmise - Cal was referring to the statement that the UA published.
  12. Tunmise - Just take the Statesman article down. If you really respect us, and you don’t your message to be mis-conveyed, you missed the point. It’s not funny. Just take it down.
  13. Kat - We can make changes to the UA statement if you want.
  14. Tunmise - The issue is not the statement, which I approved ahead of time. The issue is that we shared it coming from the UA and not everyone is behind it. It’s not the words, it’s the actions behind it. Our frustration, especially this weekend, especially feeling unsafe, is high.
  15. Kat - We shouldn’t put a burden on anyone, but if you want to tell us what we can do to help to make those words more true, please tell us.
  16. Tunmise - I want to clarify what happened and make sure people knew what was going on.
  17. Naomi - If anything happened like this to someone in my community, I wouldn’t be here tonight, so it takes a lot of power for you to be here. We support you on the body, and this is not a place for racism.
  18. Elena - I would personally like to apologize because when members of the Black community at Penn posted images of this GroupMe, I wanted to know more information. I wanted to help. Now, I better understand that I was wrong, and I genuinely want to apologize to you for that, and I really appreciate your and Cal’s bravery in speaking up about this topic.
  19. Jordan - People keep referring to the events on Friday, but it really was Thursday night. I went to bed feeling alone, tired, and scared, and I didn’t want to be here. To know that someone in the Penn community was connected to someone who would say that people shouldn’t deserve to live because of the color of their skin was horrible. There is good intention, but it’s the wrong effect. It’s not a crisis because all of the sudden something popped up, it’s because there is an undercurrent of racism in our country. This is a direct result of Donald Trump’s election. People shouldn’t be shocked about this, of course this happened. I hate the word solidarity because it seems so passive. Make sure that when you’re scrolling through Facebook that you address it. When you see people walking down Locust, don’t avert your eyes when you see a black person on campus. Make tangible change, don’t be sorry, be better.
  20. Tunmise - Even that is an example of what we are just talking about. I don’t think the reference to the bylaws was completely necessary. This isn’t my job to be doing this. I shouldn’t have to sit here and tell people how to feel about things. This is not about who is getting the job done, but that the job got done. Bottom line, be better.
  21. Brianna - On the note of solidarity, that is lip service. People that stand in solidarity are not usually willing to stand on the line to support the Black community. Do not say you are in solidarity until you are willing to stand out and defend us like we have been doing for the past week. If you are not going to fight on your behalf, then you are not an ally. It is not your duty to tell people how to feel. At the end of the day, these are facts. We are here to give you a living image of what this looks like. This is not about being bipartisan, we live in a country that is not divided, but racist, homophobic, and anti-immigrant, and filled with all of these “-isms.” Be mindful of your friends in the Black community and other communities that are deeply affected by this election. None of you will ever face the harsh realities that by function of your skin color people tell you that you do not deserve to live. Make it clear that this behavior is unacceptable. If you have not taken steps, you are not an ally. If you can’t look Black people in the eye, or you were not affected by the people crying, or you have not taken steps to reach out to people of color since Trump got elected, you are not an ally. To anyone who writes for a publication, such as the DP or the Statesman, the next time you see any inclination of Black trauma, keep your devices off. You are literally profiting off of the tears of people who are fearing for their lives. Any time that you are going to put yourself in a position where you are going to affect people of color, make sure to check with them first. If you are writing or sharing Black tragedy, don’t. You should not be enjoying someone else’s misery. It’s about time that this discussion, which may seem like a lot of anger or reproach come about does, and it’s about time.
  22. Kat - If anyone on the UA has liked, shared, or commented on this Statesman article, please unlike, unshare, and make an extra effort to take action to show that you are with the people in this room.
  23. Daniel Tancredi - The article itself was objective. All it did was outline how our campus responded to the election on Tuesday. It was not making fun, but saying how they responded. If it’s not divisive to point out what is actually happening in your lives, then is it offensive and racist and angry of me to point out what is happening on campus?
  24. Brianna - The title is condescending. “Penn reacts to Clinton loss with cancelled class and coloring.” The implication of this is that we are less mature than we are. The fact that we are facing attacks on our very being might be a good reason to skip class. My very being is being questioned. Breathing spaces and safe spaces don’t need to be in quotations. Where did you quote people from any of these impacted communities? Instead, you wrote from your perspective as a white male where you will never be affected by a Trump presidency. I pray that you do not say that this has anything to do with politics. This was not about people who were bummed about a Clinton loss. The man that the US has just put in office has stated hatred toward the Muslim, Latinx, Black, LGBTQ community. As a white man, you are in a position of privilege, and a Trump presidency will not scare you. Everyone likes to claim that it is a difference of opinion that has led to this point, but if you are anti-anything, you are wrong. Objectively. It is not your right to demean someone because they are different from you. If you are racist, you are wrong. Also stop playing games with us. This is a conservative paper, and we get what the purpose was, so stop pretending like this article is something completely different.
  25. Tunmise - I can’t believe that you brought up us fearing for our lives. Were you not listening to everything? The point of this article not being appropriate has been made. This proves that you are not listening to us. If you’re writing about people who were affected by this so deeply, and your pushing back is not appropriate. I don’t care about your guilt. This is a learning moment, because a member of your body just walked out. Spent the whole weekend crying. Received death threats. And we are exposing that your article was not objective. What else do you need?
  26. Daniel - I have nothing to say.
  27. Elena - For you to say that your article is objective doesn’t mean something wasn’t implied. In two separate Fox videos that I saw, people in the background of deeply affected safe spaces were laughing hysterically. The way that a majority of people read the article didn’t have good implications. I couldn’t get up and go to class on Wednesday. I was crying on the phone with my parents, not because I wanted to get Hillary elected. I, and my closest friends and family members will be so personally affected by this. It was awful to see a Fox reporter laughing in response to students in safe spaces.
  28. Gabbi - Regardless of your intent, you could not begin to imagine the pain that you have given to the marginalized communities is insurmountable, and I won’t stand for it.
  29. Hong - I don’t know how much right I have to speak on this issue, but I am an outsider on this situation. I am sitting here shivering because I’m looking around the room, and everyone is so emotional, and I don’t know how your first reaction is to say that your article is objective. It doesn’t matter that your article wasn’t objective, you hurt people. Your first reaction should be “I’m so sorry” and if you have any decency you will apologize.
  30. Billy - Speaking as a human being, you just don’t respond to things in the way that you do. Cal was crying outside, and you completely missed that. Impact is greater than consent. You can’t act like you are the victim. The title even of your article doesn’t reflect that Penn students are responding to the implications of the elections, not the results. You saying that you are objective is just not the point. People are coming to us with their lives, and we are concerned for our future. You’re a human being and you should be able to understand that you hurt someone’s feelings.
  31. Cal - It’s not really about feelings even. I have put my feelings aside this entire week to protect my fellow students here. My life was threatened, and you wrote an article mocking how I grieve about it. As a human being, I don’t understand why you won’t apologize, not just here, but public.
  32. Tunmise - Your apology doesn’t mean anything to me. People were added to a GroupMe with extremely racist implications, and your first reaction is to come in and defend yourself to us.
  33. Cal - I woke up this morning, after going to bed at 4, and received a message that threatened my life. That’s literally what I woke up to this morning. This is where I go to be safe. After that, I get a new friend request, and my family is involved. This is not a game. I’ve seen people in this room like and laugh at this article.
  34. Victoria - This is our lives for the last week. This is not a joke. This is a culmination of all of the issues that we have had to deal with in 2016.
  35. Cal - No one in this school has more power than the people sitting in this room. I am going to give you a chance to apologize.
  36. Daniel - I am so sorry to everyone in this room who was affected by the article. I did not come in here with the intent to discuss this, but I am so sorry for upsetting you with what I put out as that article.
  37. Kat - I don’t know what the best response is right now for us as an organization. One option that we have, trying to be thoughtful, so we can keep the meeting going as it is, meet in executive session, or adjourn the meeting.
  38. Cal - The world keeps revolving, but my world has stopped. So I’m going to leave. Thanks for your time.
