The CSU changed its presidential selection process in time for CSUN’s search, and students are demonstrating in opposition to the new method 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. today in Sierra Quad.

Students for Quality Education (SQE) is hosting a mock presidential selection to highlight how the process to choose the school’s new president will work.

“It’s a very undemocratic process in how the president is chosen and how there’s no input as far as students and faculty,” said Ashley Luke, one of the SQE organizers for the event.

The event, called “So You Think You Can Vote,” encourages students to participate in watching the experience they call “amazing, yet rigged” on their Facebook page.

After the demonstration, there will be speakers talking about the new 15-unit cap on Spring registration and how it will affect students, and the possible tuition increase the CSU board of trustees is discussing at their meeting today.

Event organizers are hoping to have a representative from the California Faculty Association (CFA) speak on CSU Dominguez Hills’ one-day strike planned for Thursday.
