At their Tuesday meeting last week, an ethical investment resolution calling for divestment from companies that violate worker's rights, human rights or that endager the environment was tabled indefinitely by the Undergraduate Students Association Council. Should USAC adopt such a resolution?
Yes, a resolution outlining a general commitment to ethical investment would align the university and student government's investment choices with widely held ethical principles. (73%, 363 Votes)
No, USAC should not back such a resolution. To do so would be to risk alienating parts of the student body. (17%, 85 Votes)
Yes, but such a resolution would benefit from tying divestment to a specific issue rather than only outlining a broad commitment to ethical practices. (8%, 38 Votes)

A proposed tax initiative, the California Residents College Accessibility and Affordability Act of 2014, would raise taxes on tobacco products to direct funds for the state's higher education systems. What do you think?
An increased tobacco tax to funnel funds to California's higher education systems is a good move and would address two major issues at once. (59%, 253 Votes)
The tobacco tax unfairly singles out smokers, who should not be responsible for raising revenue for California's public higher education institutions. (22%, 95 Votes)
The tax on tobacco products should be increased, but the revenue from the tax should go towards lung cancer or other tobacco-related research. (15%, 64 Votes)

How do you think internship labor laws could be improved?
Unpaid internships are unfair to students and course credit is an inadequate form of compensation for students. (42%, 106 Votes)
While course credit is not an ideal replacement for monetary compensation, it's better than nothing. (35%, 88 Votes)
California state government should explicitly ask that students couple their internships with course credit, allowing universities to serve as a watchdog for internship practices. (17%, 42 Votes)
I don't know how I feel about this issue. (6%, 16 Votes)
