Chances are, you learned the golden rule in kindergarten, which says that you should treat others the way you want to be treated. But you might not have heard about the platinum rule, which says that you should treat others the way they want to be treated. This is the basic idea behind the practice of sharing pronouns and allowing others to share how they would like to be identified, according to Alexandra Hill, co-director of the gender and women’s studies program.

Bánh Mì, Vietnamese for bread, has changed from its original form into a sandwich with veggies, sauce and meat. Some American restaurants have gotten rid of the bread, marketing “bánh mì bowls.” This, according to the president of UP’s Vietnamese Student Association (VSA), NganTranh Nguyen, is an example of cultural appropriation.
Portland is up by one, the shot clock is off with two seconds left in the game and Pepperdine is at the free throw line shooting two. As Pepperdine’s Hannah Friend approaches the line, the Chiles Center fills with the cheers, boos, feet stomping and yells of the crowd. As Pepperdine misses the first shot, the dome erupts ten times louder than before. Head coach Michael Meek jumping up and down with his arms wide, commanding the crowd louder. Pepperdine misses the second shot and fouls junior Lauren Walker. With less than two seconds left in the game now, Walker gets the winning shot and the buzzer goes off.

On Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, we began a new UP tradition of observing the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Although classes were canceled on that day, it was not a day off; instead, members of the campus community engaged fully in the theme, “MLK Day On: Engage, Reflect, Serve.” The day concluded with a keynote lecture by Walidah Imarisha and a musical performance by UP alumna Julianne Johnson-Weiss, current student Sharif Morton, the UP band and choir. For those seeking a structured model of reflection, our website includes guiding questions and an invitation to light a candle in the Grotto and offer a prayer of hope as we continue the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. to create a Beloved Community of justice, love and peace.
After serving as University of Portland vice president for over 10 years, John Goldrick, who has worked in various fields and locations all over the world, decided it was time to come back to UP. Today, he can be found preparing sandwiches in The Bauccio Commons. His impact on the UP community was, and still is, just as meaningful for him as it was for those around him.
Welcome back, Pilots! Well, we’re all finally back on campus and trudging our way to classes in the cold and rain (with a little snow!). If you did your break right, you probably spent most of it disassociating yourself as much as possible from whatever was happening on The Bluff, treating yourself to Santa cookies, hot cocoa and cheesy Netflix Christmas movies (I highly recommend “A Christmas Prince”).

I considered myself a reasonably informed person. I thought I was fairly aware of social injustices and systems of oppression in the United States. And of course, I wasn’t born here and learned English as a second language, an identity that’s given me lots of insights others may lack. So, why did I feel confused and uncomfortable during the 2018 Diversity Dialogues Keynote when Prisca Dorcas, founder of Latina Rebels, spoke about racism, colonialism and oppression?
