UCLA announced a policy last month that would centralize security camera data storage on campus, allowing UCPD to access camera data in case of emergencies. What do you think about this?
  • This policy is unclear in its scope and needs to be amended to ensure there aren’t gross oversteps of privacy on campus. (47%, 7 Votes)
  • This policy is a good step toward ensuring that students feel that they are adequately protected on campus. (40%, 6 Votes)
  • The policy will make no difference in how UCLA deals with emergency situations and is a wasted effort. (7%, 1 Votes)

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill this month requiring corporate boards of directors for publicly traded companies headquartered in California to include at least one woman by the end of 2019. Brown signed the bill, despite referencing several legal problems that may arise from the new law. What do you think about this?
  • The bill is a gross overstep of state power and challenges corporate freedoms in California. (45%, 74 Votes)
  • The bill will do little to addressing the corporate gender gap, as it would only incentivize a business to place one woman on its board of directors, rather than address any systemic gender disparity. (41%, 67 Votes)
  • The bill is a good first step to ensuring that women in California are given adequate opportunities to ascend to corporate leadership positions. (13%, 21 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (1%, 2 Votes)

The University of California announced that all ten campuses and five of its medical centers committed to using 100 percent clean electricity by 2025. This means the UC will be emitting zero carbon and using renewably generated electricity within a decade. What do you think about this?
  • This commitment is a positive step toward making the UC a more environmentally conscious university system. (72%, 261 Votes)
  • The UC should be pursuing a more aggressive environmental campaign, committing to eliminating its carbon footprint within a shorter time frame. (13%, 49 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this that are not expressed in the options above. (8%, 30 Votes)
  • While this commitment might be better than the UC doing nothing, it isn’t enough to truly make a difference given how long it will take to achieve the desired result. (7%, 25 Votes)

UCLA hires many of its librarians via temporary contracts that limit their benefits and wages. Librarians argue the university is abusing temporary contracts because the work they do is permanent in nature and is essential to preserving archives and supporting research. What do you think about this?
  • UCLA is mistreating its librarian employees and needs to curtail the practice of excessive use of temporary contracts. (72%, 234 Votes)
  • Temporary contracts are a necessary evil for the university, as it needs to prioritize cutting costs while maintaining essential services. (14%, 46 Votes)
  • UCLA’s use of temporary contracts has no bearing on its treatment of employees. (10%, 32 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this that are not expressed in the options above. (4%, 13 Votes)

UCLA’s Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion released a mobile app called BruinXperience, which will remind students every two weeks to complete a two-item survey where they choose a picture that best describes how they feel. The surveys are designed to help administrators better understand the campus climate. What do you think about this?
  • The app is an ineffective way to understand the campus climate, since few will download it or respond to the surveys. (64%, 121 Votes)
  • The app is a good way to get the campus’ pulse and design more resources for students. (14%, 27 Votes)
  • It is difficult for administrators to get a good understanding of the campus climate regardless of what means they use. (12%, 23 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above (10%, 18 Votes)
