Our guest speaker, Professor Adrian Burgos Jr. specializes in U.S. Latino history, African American Studies, sport history, and urban history. He is currently finalizing his book manuscript, Playing America’s Game(s): Baseball, Race, and Latinos, 1868-1959 (University of California Press), that examines the tensions that developed regarding the incorporation of individuals from the Spanish-speaking Americas in U.S. professional baseball circuits. The recipient of the Latin American Association Latino Studies Section 2001 Dissertation Award, Professor Burgos received his doctorate in US History from the University of Michigan in 2000.

And finally, the Student Code of Conduct is up for review.:

As you may know, the Code of Student Conduct—the document that governs the disciplinary procedure for all students—is up for review this year. CCAB and Students Rights Commission would like greater MSA input and we would like to hear from leaders like you about what changes need to be made.

The Code of Student Conduct, also known as the Statement of Students’ Rights and Responsibilities, can be found at

Next week, we will be holding forums to educate student leaders about what the Code is and how we can fix it. Any member of your organization is invited to attend.

Forums will be held at the following times:

Monday, September 27: Michigan League Room 4 8:30 pm
Thursday, September 30: Michigan Union, Sophia Jones Room 6:00 pm

Please RSVP as soon as possible, including the date you wish to attend. Sessions will last approximately 1 hour.

It is important that students be united behind these changes, and that can only happen with your help. You will not have the opportunity to have your ideas heard again for another 2 years.

Please contact me with any questions.
