President puts CME rumors at ease

Due to Western’s budget cuts, it has become apparent that a lot of the programs that the school offers will be cut due to the lack of finances. SGA president Alison Norris has confirmed that the Center for Multicultural Education is a program that will stay on campus and is not in danger of being cut. A lack of understanding was the reason some thought the CME was in danger of being cut. Norris feels that the situation was a misunderstanding and constantly stressed the fact that the CME program will always be here at Western. “It’s not being cut at all,” Norris said. "CME is already paid for by SGA, and administration verbally gave a promise to students that CME was not in consideration of being cut. Students were worried about the situation, but I am sure that SGA will always pay for the program. It’s in our constitution to do so." Louis Erby, president of the Black Student Union, was one of the students that became worried about the fate of the CME program. Erby feels that the situation was not addressed well to him by SGA, which only led him to assume that the program would eventually be cut from students. “We had a lot of speculations and a lot of questions because it was not explained well to us,” Erby said. “I believe in telling the truth from the jump so there won’t be any type of misconceptions. It was just a lack of communication." 20 percent of the SGA budget goes to funding for programs like CME. The money is divided up into areas in student affairs and, according to the SGA constitution, that money will go strictly to student programming that will benefit all students. CME Director Tay Triggs feels the program is something that everyone with different backgrounds and cultures should participate in. “Our main priority is to do diversity programming on campus,” Triggs said. “We don’t just do things that relates to race. We also have programs for disabilities and sexual orientation." Neither SGA nor student affairs has any plans of dismissing or replacing CME, and Norris feels that SGA will have their word in the situation if in the future someone does try to cut the program. “We know that this program is important to a lot of our students,” Norris said. “So by our constitution stand point, we cannot cut CME."
