UCLA is requiring all campus employees, including faculty and student workers, enroll in a multi-factor authentication system for MyUCLA by Oct. 31. This system would require users to, in addition to providing the password to log into MyUCLA, to choose a second authentication factor in the form of an application, a text message or a phone call. What do you think about this?
  • The multi-factor authentication is not a good move as it is an unnecessary hassle for campus employees seeking to log into their MyUCLA accounts. (50%, 173 Votes)
  • The multi-factor authentication system is a good move as it will help campus employees increase the security of their MyUCLA accounts. (35%, 123 Votes)
  • The multi-factor authentication will not noticeably improve employees’ MyUCLA account security. (10%, 36 Votes)

The Associated Students UCLA said it expects to lose over $1 million this fiscal year because of decreasing textbook sales and growing labor costs. ASUCLA’s directors intend to alleviate these losses by bringing in a variety of restaurants, such as Veggie Grill and Blaze Pizza, to the student union. What do you think about this?
  • ASUCLA’s plan to bring in more restaurants is a good move, as it will help the union entice more students to come and eat meals there. (49%, 139 Votes)
  • ASUCLA’s sales will continue to decline regardless of what new services it brings in because students are accustomed to searching elsewhere for their needs. (35%, 98 Votes)
  • ASUCLA shouldn’t invest in new restaurants because more students wouldn’t come to the union just for new food. (11%, 31 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (5%, 15 Votes)

In late September, UCLA Dining Services introduced a blended burger patty for the Covel dining hall’s signature burger. The burger patty is made up of 70 percent ground beef and 30 percent plant matter, including red beets, red quinoa, onion and mushroom. A UCLA Dining Services coordinator said she thinks the blended patty will promote healthier diets for students who do not want to completely give up meat. What do you think about this?
  • The blended patties are a commendable move, and Dining Services should continue looking for ways to promote healthier diets for students living on the Residential Hill. (53%, 125 Votes)
  • The blended patties won’t notably affect students’ diets. (21%, 50 Votes)
  • The blended patties are not a good move, as Dining Services should not try to influence students’ diets. (19%, 46 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (7%, 16 Votes)

On September 7, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced her office will roll back Title IX regulations governing campus sexual harassment investigations. She added she thinks campuses denied students accused of sexual assault their due process rights because of previous federal guidelines stating campus Title IX investigations can have a lower standard of proof than the criminal justice system requires. What do you think about this?
  • DeVos’ decision is a notable setback in combating campus sexual assault and should not be supported. (50%, 198 Votes)
  • DeVos’ decision ensures those accused of sexual assault are given their due process rights, and should be supported. (41%, 162 Votes)
  • DeVos’ decision will not have a significant effect on sexual assault investigations despite the regulation roll backs. (5%, 20 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this that are not expressed in the options above. (4%, 17 Votes)

The University of California announced that starting in October it will no longer ask prospective employees to indicate on their job application whether they have been convicted of a crime. Applicants will only be asked about their criminal record in the final hiring stages of the application process. What do you think about this?
  • The UC’s announcement should be supported, as it helps formerly incarcerated people get more employment opportunities and potentially reduce recidivism rates. (45%, 336 Votes)
  • The UC’s announcement should not be supported, as criminal records should be disclosed at the very start of the hiring process. (37%, 281 Votes)
  • The UC’s hiring policy change will not provide noticeably more job opportunities for formerly incarcerated people, and will not reduce recidivism rates. (14%, 108 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this that are not expressed in the options above. (4%, 30 Votes)
