A month ago, a guy at a party turned to me and said, “I don’t know your name, so I’m going to call you sugar tits.” Just three weeks ago, a recording of Donald Trump lauding his power to grab women “by the pussy” surfaced. One in four women on college campuses are survivors of sexual assault. It is frustratingly clear that gender inequalities persist in our world.

One of the most likely ways your friend, peer, student or child will die in college is by suicide. Though researchers at the University of Virginia have found that college students are less likely to commit suicide than those of the same age (18 to 24) in the general population, suicide is responsible for more student deaths than alcohol use.

Chief Sustainability Officer Kathleen McLaughlin outlined how the company is raising wages, reexamining relationships in its supply chain to limit environmental degradation and working in communities to broaden economic opportunity.

I had a delightfully cranky calculus teacher in high school. He had been teaching mathematics for a long time and he loved his job, partly because he enjoyed watching his students squirm in their seats. He would look at us with disapproval, his lower lip curled, and he was sarcastically condescending. I remember his words well for one instaance, in particular: “My generation,” he barked, “put a man on the moon. What’s your generation ever done?” I think this sums up well the attitude he portrayed in the classroom.

Two years ago, I joined ROTC on campus as a sophomore. That March, in 2015, the boy I considered to be one of my closest friends both in the program and in the school decided to take advantage of me one night after I had been drinking at the bars. I didn’t know what to think the next few days; I passed the night off as something that had happened before: I got too drunk, and mistakes were made. It wasn’t until I came back to school my junior year after a summer away from everything University of Michigan-related that I realized I wasn’t OK, and what had happened to me wasn’t OK.

When it comes to the future of our country, few issues are as critical as our education system. An educated population is fundamental for everything, from our economy to our democracy. Yet, education policy has been a second-tier issue in this year’s presidential campaign, and was not addressed at any of the three debates. Ask the general public, and an unfortunately large number of people won’t know where either candidate stands on the issue.
