(03/20/17 5:59pm)

It’s that time of year again, when we choose the next person to lead our student body and Student Government in the direction of progress.

Op-ed: Our Shared Responsibility

(11/22/16 12:36am)

Following the U.S. elections on November 8th, a protest which included a flag burning, occurred on our campus the following day. Later during the week, a drawing of a swastika appeared on a classroom wall. With the recent election of the next president of the United States, it became clear that many of our students who have marginalized identities in our community felt a heightened lack of security and safety. To those of us who are people of color, Muslim, Jewish, women, part of the LGBT+ community, transgender or nonbinary or have a disability, we face a very real and imminent threat to our lives and our livelihoods.

​A year about principles: ensuring equity for all of our students

(08/25/16 2:00pm)

For as long as I’ve been a student at American University and a member of our Student Government, I’ve been asked, “but what does SG do?” more times than I could count. The answer to that question lies in the objectives and methods of each AUSG administration. This year, our Student Government will have a renewed focus beyond the notions of equality and acceptance, to also cover equity, inclusion and forward-thinking progress.
