LETTER: IUSA rightfully passes anti-Semitism legislation

            After toiling for months, putting our homework on the backburner, and losing sleep over this resolution, Students Supporting Israel at Indiana University Bloomington would like to applaud the Indiana University Student Association for voting in favor of condemning anti-Semitism, but more importantly for acting in the interest of our Jewish community here on campus.

LETTER: Don't turn away Syrian refugees

ISIS is a monster and must be gone. Fighting terrorism has to be a No. 1 priority. Sadly though, instead of closing ranks, we have a raging political imbroglio going on.

LETTER: Think before you join in groupthink and clap for the wrong reasons

This past Wednesday, the auditorium of the School of Global and International Studies was packed for a teach-in by various IU faculty regarding the Paris terrorist attacks.             Professor Leslie Lenkowsky spoke about his role as the CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service during George W.

LETTER: Islamophobia in Bloomington harms us

If we can learn anything from the events of the past few weeks here in Bloomington, the attack at Sofra Cafe in particular, it’s that not even the ideal liberal college town is immune from the insidious racial hatred that underlies U.S.

LETTER: A missed opportunity by Indiana Daily Student

Our campus was most fortunate  Wednesday  evening (11/11/2015) to listen to a knowledgeable and widely known scholar and author, Dr. Joy DeGruy, share her work on “post-traumatic slave syndrome”.  The event was in the IMU’s Solarium and attended by hundreds of students, faculty and staff.  It was sponsored by CAPS/IU Health Center and the Union Board among others. Dr. DeGruy is a well-published scholar who has spoken at Oxford, Harvard and many other colleges.  Her three hour talk was highly informative and inspiring.  It was one of those provocative intellectual and emotional experiences that have sparked lively follow-up discussion.  We have found our thoughts and feelings returning again and again to Dr. DeGruy’s remarks since Wednesday. We wanted to share our disappointment that her lecture was not reported by the IDS.  We know what it is like to miss a lecture on campus and then at least have the opportunity to read the highlights in the newspaper.  Depriving your readers the opportunity to learn more about Dr. DuGruy’s work was most unfortunate, to our minds.   Sincerely,   Nancy Stockton, Director, CAPS Pete Grogg, Executive Director, IU Health Center

LETTER: Don't destroy IU's treasure of green space

I’m a native of Bloomington and graduate of IU. I’m writing to say, very respectfully, that I’m opposed to IU’s proposal to build an outdoor amphitheater in the green space between Bryan House and Ballantine Hall.

LETTER: Senator Donnelly should support the Clean Power Plan

I urge the editors at the Indiana Daily Student to call on Senator Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., to support the Clean Power Plan (CPP) and reject the Congressional review joint resolution that threatens this important response to climate change.

LETTER: Spread love, not hate

On Monday, the front page of the IDS spread had three articles. Two were about rape. One was about racism, a hate crime.
