On Feb. 22, TSL’s Editorial Board received a Letter to the Editor from Pitzer College’s Interim President Jill Klein concerning our coverage of employee maltreatment allegations. The following week, the Editorial Board responded with a letter of our own.

EDITORIAL BOARD: The 5Cs need to find a COVID policy that is here for all of us
The significant reduction of the 5Cs’ COVID-19 dashboards is an unnecessary cut to make, writes the Editorial Board, and denies community members vital information.

CMC must acknowledge that alum and major donor George Roberts, co-founder of private equity firm KKR, is far from the example of “responsible leadership” that the college claims to promote.
EDITORIAL BOARD: On fossil fuel divestment, it’s still 2013
Following an overwhelming vote by Pomona College’s student body in favor of divesting the college’s endowment from fossil fuels, the editorial board calls on Pomona’s Board of Trustees to do the right thing and finally confront the college’s role in the climate crisis.
EDITORIAL BOARD: Two years in, what does it mean to come back together?
Two years after the 5Cs sent students home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the editorial board asks what it means to truly come together and build a more resilient community.
EDITORIAL BOARD: Our staff are our backbone
We must not neglect gratitude to the 7C grounds staff and other campus workers who have invested tremendous time and effort into ensuring students’ safe and smooth return to campus during this unprecedented time, writes the TSL Editorial Board.
EDITORIAL BOARD: Pomona’s disciplinary system is ‘educational.’ Until it isn’t
Pomona College’s recent student affairs decisions show a serious difference between how it talks about discipline and how it really acts.
EDITORIAL BOARD: Reopening is hard, but students deserve better
As the 5Cs prepare to return to campus, the Editorial Board writes, chaos and confusion will be the default unless administrators work to prioritize clarity.
