General Concerns

Whereas, The Bush Administration has stated that it intends to go to war with Iraq with or without the support of the United Nations or other world nations;

Whereas, The prosecution of such a war would divert billions of dollars from needed educational and social programs; and

Whereas, There is a strong possibility that many of our students would be wrenched from our classes to fight in a war with Iraq;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate urge local senates to join with other faculty and student organizations to present debates, teach-ins, or other like events to educate our students and faculty about the issues pertaining to using war as a form of conflict resolution and the issues involved in any war effort.
