Description

A political platform advocating for administrative reform at the University of Texas. The platform calls for taking the power of governance away from administrators and entrusting it to the students and the faculty. It also calls for less emphasis on grading, more flexibility in class structure, and the reaffirmation of the university as a place of intellectual exploration rather than bureaucratic regimentation.
