Members of the student council at the Madison, Wisconsin, university are requesting that the college change ingredients in the school’s official ice cream.
At the time of this writing, the legislation has eight sponsors, including the chair, vice chair, and secretary of the Associated Students of Madison Student Council.
According to “Ice Cream for All,” this effectively ruins the ice cream experience for some minority students, rendering “certain communities such as the Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and vegetarian unable to enjoy it without violating their beliefs.”
Though the council is intended to represent a student-type government, it cannot effect change, and can only make recommendations to the university on the ice cream.
Also, if passed, the council will recommend that the school officially acknowledge that the university’s official ice cream marginalizes some students.
