Student Diversity Protesters Voice Concerns

KSAL StaffDecember 10, 2015

Student leaders at the University of Kansas have passed legislation that seeks to improve inclusion on campus just hours after a student protest.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the Student Senate unanimously approved a motion Wednesday night to create a wheelchair basketball team. The Student Senate also passed a bill to expand adoption of gender-neutral language. Student leaders are waiting until January to further discuss impeachment proceedings against three top leaders.

Hours earlier about 100 student protesters marched in the chancellor’s officer and demanded more and faster action on diversity issues. The group dispersed after securing a sit-down meeting with incoming interim provost Sara Rosen.

The students’ concerns include issues of diversity, inclusion and instances of alleged racism at the university.
