The strike that brought AUC to a standstill last week has been put on hold as protesters and the Administration agreed on concessions this afternoon, Student Union Vice-President Ahmed Ezzat said.
Ezzat said President Lisa Anderson would send two emails, one tonight that promises to meet "75 percent" of the security, landscaping and custodial staff's demands and another tomorrow at 9am addressing the short and long-term demands of students.
Both emails are expected to provide a time frame for when the demands will be met.
After 32 years of being inactive the national Egyptian Student Union (ESU) has been resurrected after a four-day conference held at The American University in Cairo on August 20.
Under President Sadat’s rule the ESU was banned by presidential decree along with a series of other measures that curbed political rights and prevented organized opposition in the same year that Sadat signed the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty.
The attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 would not only dramatically change American lives, but through the course of the next decade affect millions around the world.
In the wake of the attacks the United States declared wars on Afghanistan and Iraq.
On October 7, less than a month after the attacks, American and British military forces, aided by the Afghan United Front, launched Operation Enduring Freedom to oust the Taliban from power and capture Osama bin Laden.
Dozens of students protested a recent nine-percent increase in tuition fees in front of the administration building during assembly hour Sunday, but the lower than expected turnout signaled more needed to be done to raise awareness.
