KU Plans to Address Racism

KSAL StaffNovember 13, 2015

University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little says her school plans to begin sharing information next week on how it will address racism and discrimination.

She said in a message posted Friday on the university’s website: “I see you. I hear you. You matter.”

The message comes in the wake of the unrest at the University of Missouri this week and after a forum that Gray-Little moderated on Wednesday, where a group calling itself Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk presented its demands.

Their demands included hiring a director for the Office of Multicultural Affairs, mandatory inclusion training for students and faculty, increased diversity in hiring, counselors to address mental issues and creation of an independent “Multicultural Student Government.”

The group also seeks a ban on concealed weapons on campus.
