Question of the Week

Do you think GVSU students are encouraged to discuss controversial issues on campus?

“Yes. Take Back the Night, the Women’s Center and the LGBT Resource Center make it more open to voice your opinion. I take advantage of those resources.”

“No, but I don’t think they’re discouraged. I’m aware of centers for students [to speak out], but I definitely think there should be more opportunities for them.”

“There are not very many opportunities to speak out, but it really depends on the issue as to whether to hold discussions.”

“I think that faculty and staff do a good job in promoting [discussion] in classes. It’s good for people that aren’t comfortable speaking out in public.”

“No, I don’t think [students] talk about it enough. I hear more about [controversial issues] through social media like Facebook and Twitter. I’m surprised we don’t talk about it in classes as much.”
