Go protest, says Senate

Senate has recommended that students who miss classes to take part in a national day of action not be punished by their academic units or by individual professors.

At it’s regular meeting held Jan. 13, Senate approved the following motion proposed by MUN Student's Union and the Grenfell College Student's Union: "That Senate encourages academic units and professors to be flexible in making alternate arrangements, including re-scheduling examinations and the deadlines for submission of assignments, for students who are absent from classes between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Feb. 4, 2004, so that they may freely participate in the day of action with no fear of academic repercussions."

On this day, students in Newfoundland and Labrador will be participating in rallies and events in conjunction with students, faculty and other organizations from across Canada.
