CSE Position Letters

The Committee on Student Emplyment (CSE) has resolved to issue position letters to advise the SG Executive Slate on matters relevant to student employment, also to promote wider discussion both within the SG and the wider campus community. Each letter is approved by the committee and subject to review/ratification as part of the CSE's end-of-year report. These public letters are designed to be short statements on well-known current affairs, many of which do not require long introductions. The letters do provide a number of concrete suggestion, but they also have a role in linking the work of the committee to broader questions. As such they are not limited to internal affairs only, but they also respond to questions that situate the University of Chicago in the broader labor community in Chicago and the United States of America. We hope that you will find these interesting pieces for debate, and that interested students will reach out to the CSE with comments and suggestions on existing positions or to propose new ones.
