Tonight: “Urgent, All-Hands on Deck” Meeting for Need-Blind

Wesleyan’s Board of Trustees is on campus this weekend for the first time since May, when they first voted to scale back need-blind. Wesleying has received word of an urgent organization meeting happening in Usdan tonight—not to be confused with our upcoming forum with President Roth, which is set for Monday:

Dear friends,

The Board of Trustees is on campus this weekend, and their Executive Session is tomorrow (Sunday). While we recognize that need blind admissions is a complicated issue, we believe we have a vital obligation as students to demonstrate to the board of trustees and the administration thatNeed-Blind matters to students.

We are meeting tonight at 6:30 PM in the Usdan Multipurpose Room (basement, down the hall from the package center) to discuss how we can respectfully and constructively communicate to the Board that Need-Blind matters. This is an urgent, all-hands on deck meeting. Convincing the Board that a large number of students care about Need-Blind is our only hope for having a voice in decisions that affect us as students. We will have other opportunities to do this, but this is a big one.

Please come. Nobody has this covered; it’s not being taken care of by someone else. It’s just us, your classmates and neighbors, and as many of you can make it.

Wesleyan Students ’13, ’14, ’15, ’16


  • Meeting: Tonight 6:30PM, Usdan Multipurpose Room (Basement of Usdan)
  • Purpose: Decide as a group how we can respectfully show the Board of Trustees tomorrow that students care about Need-Blind

Date: Today, September 22
Time: 6:30 pm
Place: Usdan Multipurpose Room (Basement of Usdan)
Facebook: Invite yo’ friends.
