On Nov. 15, UCLA announced the first in a series of Grand Challenges, an initiative proposed earlier this year by the Obama administration. The grand challenge called "Thriving in a Hotter Los Angeles" aims to make the city entirely serviced by renewable sources of energy and local water resources by 2050. What do you think of this initiative?
As a leader in research, UCLA is well suited to take on this challenge to make Los Angeles a more sustainable community. (52%, 118 Votes)
Making Los Angeles sustainable by 2050 is an unrealistic goal given the amount of research and funding that must materialize for this to happen. (32%, 73 Votes)
I feel like this challenge is too broad and distant to matter to me as a student right now. (15%, 33 Votes)
I don't know how I feel about the challenge. (1%, 1 Votes)

On Nov. 4, third-year Afro-American studies student Sy Stokes posted a video on YouTube called "The Black Bruins [Spoken Word]," which presents an argument for increased diversity at UCLA. Have you seen the video and does it affect your view of diversity at UCLA?
I have seen the video and it does not affect the way I view diversity on campus. (46%, 372 Votes)
The video makes me feel that UCLA should do more to increase diversity, but I do not think affirmative action is the solution. (24%, 189 Votes)
The video makes me feel that UCLA admissions policies and campus diversity would benefit if California made affirmative action legal by repealing Proposition 209. (23%, 188 Votes)
I have not seen the video. (7%, 55 Votes)

On Oct. 30, UC President Janet Napolitano allocated $5 million for programs aimed at undocumented students, $5 million to support postdoctoral researchers and another $5 million for graduate students. What do you think about Napolitano's decision to increase support for undocumented students?
There are other ways this money could have been better spent. (51%, 147 Votes)
This is a commendable effort by Napolitano to increase support for undocumented students. (20%, 58 Votes)
Although this is a good first step, Napolitano must continue outreach efforts toward undocumented students. (19%, 55 Votes)
The allocation will do little to assuage the concerns of undocumented students with Napolitano's appointment. (10%, 28 Votes)

At an ASUCLA Board of Directors meeting held on Friday, Oct. 25, Adam Swart, an undergraduate representative, proposed a “nap room” on the third floor of Kerckhoff Hall where students could access 11 "sleep pods" for an on campus nap. What do you think of this idea?
Eleven sleep pods would not be enough to meet the demand of students looking for a place to snooze on campus. (53%, 326 Votes)
I would welcome a room made specifically for napping on campus - it might help me during midterms and finals. (24%, 146 Votes)
I wouldn't sleep in a "nap room" on campus. (23%, 143 Votes)
