Each month, the CFN Student Spotlight features a student member who is working to promote individual rights on his or her campus. For February, I am pleased to announce that our featured student is Austin Ford of the University of California, Los Angeles ’12. In his time at UCLA, Austin has done significant work to inform his fellow students about individual rights on campus and has pointed out flaws in campus policy. With his group, the Bruin Democrats, Austin is tabling during UCLA’s “Know Your Rights” week, handing out information from FIRE and the ACLU. He has also taken notice of recent changes to UCLA’s student conduct code which, he believes, have taken away significant due process rights. In the future, he hopes to work with his group to reform these policies.
