Calling for Student Submissions

Dear Readers,

 This is an open call for student submissions to The Morningside Post (TMP) this spring! My name is Brittany Cronin and I’m your new editor in chief.

 We have an amazing board of ten editors and correspondents whom you’ll get to know over the course of the next couple of weeks. Together, we’re working to make sure that TMP is a space where SIPA students can voice concerns and perspectives about life at SIPA, as well as reflect on life, politics, and policy in New York City and beyond. But we can’t do this without the support of you, our readers.

 Let’s be real, you came to SIPA because you have strong opinions about the kind of world you want to live in. Why not articulate that voice and share it with the rest of your SIPA community?

 So tell us what’s on your mind! How do you feel about your time at SIPA? What is something you wish your fellow classmates were talking about? If you want to try your hand at writing an op-ed, because for a lot of you that will be a part of your future jobs, then you should submit to TMP. If you’re funny or you like to draw, we want you to share that with us. If you really appreciate a post, or don’t agree at all, write us a letter.

 You do not have to be a professional to submit! Submissions can come in all forms and we are excited to collaborate with you to ensure your work is crafted into a piece that reflects your ideas and voice.

 TMP exists because of people like you, who read our articles and submit your work. To submit, shoot us an email at tmpsipasubmissions@gmail.com. We thank you for engaging and we look forward to reading your work.

TMP Editorial: Sexual Harassment on Campus

Following images may contain stories of sexual assault, harassment, and racism.

The 2018 executive board of The Morningside Post firmly believes that we have a responsibility to let all members of our community have access to information that may affect their safety and physical and mental wellbeing. The Morningside Post believes in the community’s willingness to hold one another accountable and treat each other with respect. Below are collections of images that we believe highlight the ways that toxic masculinity manifests itself in harmful and, perhaps, dangerous ways on our SIPA campus. This collection is about one person, and we believe it emphasizes a need for community self-reflection and greater administrative accountability.

Please note that although the text message screenshots are generated to reflect the hushed nature of how these stories are told to one another, the contents of the messages are real life experiences that people shared with us in confidence. We will not disclose the names of the sources for personal safety reasons, but we confirm that the stories are credible. We want to let the greater SIPA community know that these stories are often whispered amongst us, albeit cautiously.

If you would like to talk to a professional, here are the University-wide network of resources for support:
