KU Student Leaders Not ‘Mimicking Mizzou’

KSAL StaffNovember 16, 2015

Protest leaders at the University of Kansas say they’re pushing for changes to ensure that problems faced by minority and other “marginalized” students are addressed swiftly and effectively.

But they said Monday they won’t follow University of Missouri students in seeking the ouster of administrators.

Leaders of the Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk group in Kansas acknowledged that they were inspired by protests at the University of Missouri that led to resignation of the system’s president and the chancellor of its flagship Columbia campus.

They have presented demands to the university that included increasing faculty diversity, a team of counselors for students of color and mandatory “inclusion and belonging” training for all students and staff.

But one of their leaders, St. Louis-area junior Kynnedi Grant, said they’re not “mimicking Mizzou.”
