Staff Editorial: Support for Student Staff opening dialogs

This week, Joint Board unanimously resolved to support discussions about oppression and campus climate at Grinnell (see article, page 2). This resolution supports training Student Staff to create an open environment for incoming first-years during New Student Orientation. Also, SAs will be encouraged to hold discussions on race, class, and gender during study breaks. We hope that this will help new students understand how to talk about these issues without resorting to hate speech.

We echo SGA’s call for faculty and staff members to work more explicitly to promote diversity. They are an invaluable part of Grinnell’s identity and their involvement is needed to change Grinnell. We look forward to seeing how SGA and Residence Life enact this resolution.
