One year after Student Activities and Leadership (SAL) began rigorously enforcing its policy of open membership in student groups, the benefits of increased student membership have for some organizations come at the cost of financial strain and new administrative challenges.
I have nothing against SOCC. In fact, I appreciate their goal of working for disadvantaged minority communities at Stanford. I just wish they would recognize that Jewish students are one such community. I hope SOCC can recognize that what they asked me was wrong. I hope SOCC will apologize and work to address the needs of Jewish students, as well as other minority students.
