After calling for a “cure to homosexuality” last summer, ECS Professor Timothy P. Farage was under investigation by UTD. However, he maintained his teaching position since he didn’t speak out on campus or on a campus platform. SG passed a resolution recommending that UTD does not renew Farage’s teaching contract. If the resolution is adopted by UTD and ECS, Farage will not be renewed after 2025.
The governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, requested that public universities deliver data regarding student health services including gender-affirming care to the state government. In the case that Texas governor, Greg Abbott, requests similar information, SG has passed a resolution requesting UTD to not comply with such requests for the safety of students.
Hot Comet Walk
On the morning of April 20, SG will host a Hot Comet Walk, where students can walk around campus in a large group to celebrate Earth Week and inform others on campus about sustainability. Flowers will be available as a compostable offering.
