Student Union Petitions

Your Voices. Heard.

The Student Union is always looking for better ways to hear your voice, on issues big and small. Petitions are our newest attempt to do just that. Though the views expressed on this page do not reflect the views of the Student Union, nor of Brandeis University, we want a way for students to easily express themselves without the formality of resolutions and referendums.

In desigining petitions, we wanted to make them accountable. A Petition author must sign the petition with their email open to the public, to make sure that the individual is willing to stand behind their idea or comment. Additional signatories (both for and against the petition) will have to log in with a valid Brandeis Student Email in order to sign, and will have their email public within the Brandeis community, to allow like-minded people to find one another and work together.

To sign any of the petitions below, you can click on their title, which will take you to a new page where you can sign them (or sign against them). To create a petition, click on the link below.

Let students use the SCC Bikes

Written by Tristan Ramirez de Haro ( ( on Monday, October 02, 2017 at 05:07 PM

Dear Student Union, I want to make a petition that you advocate against the person or people in charge of renting the SCC bikes, so that students can use them. I have been hearing for two semesters in the information desk that the person who is in charge of running the service is not here, but they will be next semester. My freshman and sophmore years I used to rent those bikes nearly every week, and now that I have a job outside campus I'm forced to pay multiple uber rides. I've tried for 1 month to find a decently priced bike on the internet and its just been imposible. Could you please use your leverage as the student union to get the bike service back in operation. Thank you, Tristan
