The Coalition of Immokalee Workers is calling for a student boycott of the Wendy’s in Jester Residence Hall because Wendy’s hasn’t signed its agreement to buy tomatoes from growers adhering to strict labor standards.
Hall served on the UT System Board of Regents from 2011 to 2017. The Daily Texan reported in 2015 that during his time as a regent, Hall looked into the University’s admission procedures by making costly requests for more than 800,000
pages of documents.
In 2017, the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement added the initiative to make tours more inclusive to their plan, because they were concerned with the inconsistency of the historical information presented on tours.
Peers for Pride is a two-semester LGBTQ-centered course giving students the opportunity to use skills including theatre and critical analysis to create the workshop “What Do Thriving Queer Communities Look Like?”
Current and former members of the Council described it as one of the most powerful advisory bodies on campus and said student voices on the committee are essential. It has influence over ticket prices, student attendance at sporting events and hiring coaches.
