UC Santa Cruz’s Demonstration Advisory Group will hold an open forum on May 7 for students, faculty and staff to voice their ideas and concerns regarding on-campus protests and demonstrations. The group hopes to improve and better shape campus policies toward demonstrations in light of the protest incidents at UC Berkeley and UC Davis last fall.
The Demonstration Advisory Group, staffed by administration, faculty and student volunteers, is hosting a forum the weekend before ﬁnals. The forumʼs purpose is to gather feedback from students on their experiences with demonstrations, protests, and the universityʼs response to them.
Faculty, students, and the UC Santa Cruz administration make up the newly formed Demonstration Advisory Group (DAG), whose purpose is to gather information from students and other interested parties to more clearly inform the UC on how to enact regulatory policy with regard to demonstrations.
