Options for A Solution
(If you haven't learn about the issue, go here first.)
- The CSU Administration eliminates the new mandates for clubs created by Executive Order 1068 ("EO 1068"), and leadership and membership requirements for student groups return to their pre-2012 status (which worked just fine); or
- The CSU Administration makes critical revisions to EO 1068, at a minimum exempting belief and advocacy-based student organizations from new requirements so the mission, values, and principles of their groups can be protected; or
- Should the CSU Administration be unwilling to budge (as they have been thus far), sponsor state legislation to eliminate the new mandates for clubs created by EO 1068, or to exempt belief and advocacy-based student organizations from the policy.
- A bill would be quite simple and straightforward, and best of all this is a highly non-partisan issue! A bill would also protect student organizations in the University of California ("UC") school system from having a policy such as this enacted on their campuses. The bill would ideally take on language similar to bills passed in North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, or Idaho. These states have been proactive in protecting student groups from the disastrous effects of open membership ("all-comers") policies.
