EXCLUSIVE: Brandeis Provost Green Lights Academic Pass for Protesters

Earlier this week, Brandeis University became the latest in a long line of academic institutions to receive a “list of demands” from its allegedly beleaguered student body. Saying that “we [Brandeis has] failed our black students,” “Concerned Students 2015″ released a laundry list of demands to the administration that included a minimum wage increase for student employees, and the appointment of a VP of “Diversity and Inclusion.”

Students have since marched on various buildings, and are currently occupying (at some level) the public areas of the administration building. Since this is college, I feel free to assume that this has caused a certain amount of uproar when it comes to attendance policies.

Never fear—Brandeis has the situation under control. Interim Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Irving R. Epstein sent an email to the faculty last night giving them “discretion in regard to class attendance and completion of academic work.”
