I’ve had several years to observe and analyze the 2016 election cycle, its aftermath and the responses of the general populace. Here is a non-exhaustive, comprehensive guide of major discursive blind spots that permeate discussions of current events and how to deal with them.
The University of Richmond – at its foundation and in its everyday practices – elevates the status of white heterosexual cisgender men at the expense of everyone else.
Dear members of the University of Richmond community,
As a returning sophomore, I was excited to come back to the University of Richmond to engage and interact with a variety of clubs and organizations. But as time has gone on, my passion for this place dies a little bit every day because of the lack of social inclusivity and opportunities for students.
When Arthur Schlesinger Jr. offered his take on the concept of the Imperial Presidency in his 1973 book of that same name, he focused squarely on the office of the United States presidency itself. Schlesinger argued that in the post-World War II era, the office of the presidency had accumulated enormous power — first in the theater of war, then in the domestic arena — that relied on extra-constitutional authority, subverting the intent of the writers of the Constitution.
This past month, the Richmond College Student Government Association and Westhampton College Goverment Association began a movement to create a free speech policy at the University of Richmond.
There’s no mistaking that the 2018 midterm elections are different.
On Oct. 19, 2018, I presented a resolution to the University of Richmond faculty senate, asking it to adopt a policy regarding freedom of expression on campus that would clearly define the rights and responsibilities of our community in regard to free expression.
“The First Amendment is in serious trouble.”
Politics in America suck right now.
In the 2019 edition of The Princeton Review (The Best 384 Colleges: 2019 Edition), the University of Richmond maintained its reputation as one of the top-rated universities in the nation. UR ranked among the top 20 schools for dining options, health services, library facilities, study abroad programs and popularity of Greek life. It ranked among the top 10 schools for athletic facilities and quality of life among students and for having a beautiful campus. The university ranked among the top five schools for career services, classroom experience and internships, and it was ranked the No. 3 best-run college in the country. Incredible!
Earlier this month, Rob Papandrea wrote an opinion piece about why Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed to the Supreme Court (which you should go read). I disagree fundamentally with Papandrea's assertion that Kavanaugh should have been confirmed as well as the evidence he uses, so I felt motivated to write a response.
On merit and record alone, Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination process to the Supreme Court should have been a relatively easy one. And as long as the allegations against him continue to be unsubstantiated, he must be confirmed as the 114th justice of the Supreme Court.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was called to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday to account for one of several sexual assault allegations against him.
Editor's note: This opinion piece was updated to include information about policies regarding fraternity events without alcohol.
At the core of all lessons in the University of Richmond journalism department is one central goal: to teach storytelling. And so, as students of this fine department, the members of The Collegian Editorial Board have a story to tell. It is the story of a small number of professors who relentlessly pursue the best out of their students. It is the story of how that department’s strengths have created an unsustainable demand. And it is the story of why we feel the department desperately needs a fifth full-time professor position. Read on for our collective stories, and sign the petition for a new professor here.
If the media and cyberspace are anything to go by, everybody seems to be a Nazi these days: proponents of border security, advocates for religious liberties, critics of religious extremism, practicing Christians and regular-old Americans who would otherwise mind their own business.
The proposed Equal Rights Amendment has a storied history in America. It has, at times, been through brutal political wars, and has seen resistance from prominent women’s groups.
