UC Irvine Suspends College Republicans at UCI for a Year for Hosting Gay Conservative Speaker, Milo Yiannopoulos
UCI administrators requested to meet with Ariana Rowlands, College Republicans at UCI’s President, under the guise of debriefing the planning process of the College Republicans at UCI (CRUCI) hosted event, “Social Justice is Cancer by Milo Yiannopoulos” which took place on June 2nd. Only hours after the conclusion of that meeting CRUCI execs were emailed by a UCI administrator from the UCI Student Center, informing the club almost a full month after the event but 4 hours after meeting with administration, that not only is CRUCI suspended for the concluded Spring 2016 quarter, but the next three quarters as well (a full academic year at UCI). The cited reason is that CRUCI failed to provide a certificate of insurance for the private security hired for the event to protect Yiannopoulos.

Featuring a panel of scholars, experts, and Restorative Justice leaders, this special event will critically examine ways in which the university can contribute to the success of local movements for change, especially in the fight for Restorative Justice.

For decades, Dr. Joseph Wu has used UCI’s PET brain imaging technology as the basis of his forensic diagnoses in murder cases. Wu’s testimony has a dubious reputation among experts in the field, with one calling it “hokum.”
