Trinity University policies are currently undergoing changes that may be implemented next semester. According to Jamie Thompson, director of Student Involvement, a committee made up of faculty and SGA senators is reviewing existing policy related to free speech, events, facilities use and more. They are considering potential new policies that would tie together certain polices and procedures. In the fall, Danny Anderson, president of the university, convened an ad-hoc committee to look over the university policy...

The free expression of ideas is the cornerstone of higher education, especially a liberal arts education. Free and open expression is necessary for the intellectual and personal growth of our students. When a university promotes the practice of free expression, it does not promote or embrace a specific political or ideological allegiance, nor does it legitimize all of the positions in the marketplace of ideas. All around our country, the partisan divide has created an...

The freedom of expression, guaranteed by the First Amendment, is one of the core principles of this nation. About one year ago, the Washington Post changed its slogan to “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” We couldn’t agree more. In part, that’s why the Trinitonian strives to bring you the most in-depth coverage of campus. We offer news and opinions that you can’t find anywhere else. As a private university, Trinity is not legally required to extend...

This semester, the Event Review Committee (ERC), an interoffice working group, was created to prepare for events on campus. The committee most recently worked with Trinity Progressives (T-Prog) to host Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, in collaboration with Our Revolution Texas. The lecture was the first big test for the committee that formed from an earlier incarnation this fall. According to Shannon Edmond, coordinator for student programs and member of the ERC, the event followed an...

Most weeks, the opinion pages of the Trinitonian are filled with only our staff writers’ voices, supplemented by the occasional faculty columnist. In itself, that’s no problem — we employ talented student columnists because they are good writers with relevant opinions to share, and we seek out professors to share their views, too. But we also open our opinion pages to our readership, inviting you to submit short letters to the editor as a reaction...

Members of the Patriot Front, a self-described fascist organization, hung flyers bearing white nationalist messages around campus on Monday. One poster featured a map of the United States and the text “NOT STOLEN, CONQUERED”; another read “RESURRECTION THROUGH INSURRECTION.” All of the flyers included the URL for the website of the Patriot Front. Roughly one dozen flyers were found and taken down. Soon after the administration was made aware of the flyers, university president Danny Anderson...
