Student-Activist Denied Registration by UIC
On August 10, José had a formal meeting with UIC administrators, and all of our demands were met! The University agreed to immediately lift the hold on José's registration and guarantee his TA assistantship for the Fall semester. José is now officially registered for classes. Also, the University Provost attended the hearing and personally apologized to José for the unjust way he was treated - she agreed to work with the different departments involved to make sure this does not happen again. Our petition-- which had over 200 signatures-- was delivered to the administration at the meeting. On behalf of the Graduate Employees Organization (GEO), thank you for showing UIC admins that an injury to one is an injury to all.
