Proposed Solutions to Improve Senior House’s Academic Performance and Return to Policies that Reflect the Core Missions and Beliefs of MIT:
Undo the last-minute decision to turn Senior House into a graduate resident dorm.
Let the majority of SH residents live in Senior House by abolishing the application process.
The administration will not practice or condone collective punishment.
Transparency and genuine student input: All decisions made about the future of Senior House, or any other living group, should be done with the knowledge, input, and consent of the residents.
Continue the precedent of self-governance: Residents will be allowed to organize in-house government and will have an active role in choosing their GRTs.
Keep the positive aspects of Senior House culture intact; cat and mural policies should remain unchanged. Current murals should not be painted over. A specific effort should be made to preserve Senior House as a unique haven for students of color, LGBTQ+ students, and students who are socioeconomically disadvantaged.
