GSU Denied Room for Meeting

This document, filed in 1986, included both the original memo from the Graduate Center's Associate Provost for Academic Affairs, Geoffrey Marshall, and the Graduate Student Union’s (GSU) response. In the initial memo, the permission to use a room was withdrawn for the following reason: “The activity for which the GSU wishes to use the room...is not appropriate to the authorized use of Graduate Center facilities by the Graduate Student Union.” The GSU’s response claimed that the action “has shown a cynical contempt for the rights of students and the right of free speech” and announced the group's intention to meet despite the withdrawal of permission.
