Penn’s decision to prioritize the reduction of labor costs over fostering positive student-staff relations not only contradicts its commitment to being a good neighbor by mistreating its workers from surrounding communities, but affirms societal concerns that higher education is a business in which academic institutions care more about their own financial well-being than about educating students or serving their respective communities.

Seek out the help that is there for you.

Penn must reform the system that claims to prioritize equality, but in its current state fosters a culture that rewards donors.

Ultimately, growing up in America makes it impossible to ignore the inequities in the health care system for long.

We give to The Penn Fund because Penn changed all of our lives.

The list of responsibilities that RAs are expected to take on is long and demanding, especially given the fact that they — like the residents they serve — are students.

The issue is that the systems at play at Penn do more to shuffle students around and ensure that their suffering does not create a public relations problem for the University than actually mitigate the suffering itself.

Debate and resist not what causes minor malaise, but the despondent concerns that negatively influence the lives of everyone around us. Strive to be a better member of both the Penn community and our larger home in Philadelphia.
