Dear Readers,

There is some good news and some bad news.

The good news is that my proposal regarding the hate crime incident (read here) was actually seen by the lawyer or someway listened to because the administrative review and grievance procedures have changed (You can read the new one here).  Only small parts of our proposal/arguments were listened to but at least the changes are one small step in the right direction.  At least I can say and know that my efforts and persistence paid off.

The bad news is that this is my last post.  If anyone still wants their story published I will off course do so and if anyone wants to take the reins, I am more than willing to hand them over.

I hope this blog has been informative and helpful.  I also hope that I will not be judged to harshly.

Please check out the ‘Last Projects’ Tab above or by clicking here.  I have also put some links to articles I have written in that tab here:

1.  How to Ensure your Student Rights in a Foreign Country

2. Partial Lock on Tuition Idea

3. Having Vegetarian Options at the Caf

Best wishes to you in the next year and may you be at peace,

MD C

Dear readers,

Tomorrow, Thursday November 14th at 4:30 pm, EST, the president of BGLAM, Courtney, and myself will be meeting with the Dean of Basic Sciences, Dr. Ron Testa, and the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Cindy Stroschein, regarding the BGLAM Hate Crime Prevention Proposal in response to the hate crime incident.  Hopefully, they will agree to our proposal and will enact the meaningful changes students are requesting within the time limits given.  It is also my hope that the next BGLAM executive board will continue to move this forward and that all organizations and students recognize that, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” (Martin Luther King).  Please leave a comment of support!

May you be at peace,

MD C

Hello all,

As you may have noticed, I have not published in a while.   This is due to two things; one, I have an incredibly engrossing school load (i.e. Blocks, Finals, Comprehensive Exam).   Two, my free time has been taken up by the hate crime incident response I am working on with BGLAM.   The good news out of all of this is that once I have all of those documents complete, I will be posting them all for all you to see.

After my shelf exam or comprehensive exam, I will try to publish some more posts on the Unknown War @ AUC.   I also plan to add a student story page/tab for the few stories told to me by student(s) who felt wronged by AUC.   This being said, if you have any story you would like to share about AUC that you feel was unresolved, let me know.

Otherwise, wish me luck in the next few weeks.

Sincerely,

MD C

Purpose of this Blog

This blog is an account of past and present struggles at the American University of the Caribbean Medical School (AUC). My colleagues and I endeavored to make our Caribbean Medical School more progressive and supportive of all its students. We worked against an administration and student government to end marginalization of students and fight ignorance. When all was said and done, the administration at AUC claimed that they had single handily brought more diversity to AUC. It's time to share the whole story.

This is the story of those that fought for progress, stood up to AUC's administration/SGA and, just sometimes, won.
