St. Mary’s is an institution that rests on a strong foundation of social justice. From our founding principles to the advocacy efforts of our students today, we have always sought to create opportunities for others, engage in sustainability efforts, and uphold our vision as a public honors college. This wage proposal is an outgrowth of those values. At this critical time in our institution’s history, we can provide a new vision for what higher education can be. We have the opportunity to grow our social justice roots, change the landscape of higher education, and, simply, do the right thing. While some details need to be weighed, discussed, and perhaps revised, I hope we can reach agreement on the overall purpose of plan and begin to take action.
