“Berkeley College Republicans is a valued student organization in good standing”
Someone must have figured out how bad this idea would look in practice.
Campus Reform reports:
Berkeley College Republicans survive threat to cut funding
The University of California-Berkeley student government has rescinded a proposal that would have reallocated all College Republicans funding to the Black Student Union.
The Finance Committee Chair for the Associated Students of the University of California Senate (ASUC), Nuha Khalfay, confirmed to Campus Reform that the motion to reallocate BCR funding to the BSU had been rescinded, citing legal concerns as the reason for taking the motion off of the table.
As Campus Reform originally reported, ASUC Senator Rizza Estacio put forward a motion late last month to amend the budget allocations given to student organizations by eliminating the $1,000 given to the BCRs and turning the entire sum over to the BSU.
Estacio claimed that the BCRs “have violated a lot of, like, lead center rules during like free speech week,” arguing that as result, the BCR’s do not deserve funding from the ASUC.
However, Dan Mogulof, the assistant vice chancellor for UC-Berkeley, told Campus Reform that the BCR group is in good standing.
“I have no idea what the senator was referring to when he claimed the BCR has violated campus policies,” said Mogulof. “As far as the University’s administration is concerned the Berkeley College Republicans is a valued student organization in good standing.”
