Students For A Democratic Society

This week on The Rostrum we interview Shirley Reyes and Bryn Dayton, members of the Students for a Democratic Society. The “SDS” is an activist group that was inspired by the civil rights movement and is concerned with equality, economic justice, peace, and participatory democracy. Currently, this group is working to make the University of Utah a sanctuary for undocumented students.

Sexual Assault on Campus

The Rostrum sits down with Darrah Jones, Sexual Assault Support Advocate, to discuss the topic of sexual assault on college campuses, at the University of Utah and across the nation. We explore the information and context of rape and sexual assault and how, as students, we can combat rape culture and the violence it perpetuates.
