Students participating in the College in Prison Program of Saint Louis University's Bonne Terre Campus have published their first literary journal, The Downtime Review.
The journal is an anthology of poetry, narrative, essay, and various other forms of literature. All pieces included in the Review were written by students in the College in Prison Program. The journal was also edited and reviewed by students involved with the InsideOut Alliance - a student group current under probationary status of the Student Government Association.

After the Live the Oath: Human Dignity event, sponsored by DLC and the President's Diversity Council, a list of student concerns was created. This list was then evaluated and an action plan for addressing those concerns has been formed. These concerns will be addressed by members of DLC, PDC and SGA.
The action plan is attached to this announcement.
If there are any questions about these initiatives or if you would like to become involved with the resolution of these concerns, please email Vice President of Diversity and Social Justice Kripa Sreepada, via firstname.lastname@example.org.

The SGA executive board has made a commitment to providing more resources and going after projects that provide a campus encouraged by the Oath of Inclusion. These projects include more services for pregnant and parenting students, more opportunities for students with disabilities, more translated documents for international students, better flexibility in the academic schedules of members of military, a community free from sexual assault, more dietary diversity, more opportunities for interfaith retreats and gatherings, more awareness on resources available to students regardless of socioeconomic status, and a more transparent speaker approval process that can challenge our world views. If you are interested in any of these projects or have another one to offer, please contact Kripa Sreepada at email@example.com. We need your help to get this done!
The Diversity Leadership Cabinet has developed a form that can be utilized by students to voice concerns regarding any Diversity and Inclusion issues on campus. This form will be monitored by members of the cabinet and all concerns will be responded to in a timely manner. Click here to use the form to voice your concerns today.
Under the leadership of Kripa Sreepada and Adriana Black, the Diversity Leadership Cabinet has formed a dialogue series that will take place in the Cross Cultural Center each night at 7pm, from November 28th to December 8th. This series comes from the belief that there is no issue too large that cannot be addressed when people gather and discuss in a safe and honest environment. Please try to attend as many dialogues as possible!
