Article "Commission on diversity views campus racial issues"

Description

University of Richmond President, Richard Morrill, orders the Commission on Diversity to address the multiple incidents’ of minority students experiencing racism on campus. All aspects of racism will be reviewed by the commission including the treatment of black employees on campus. As the ratio of black students, faculty, and staff to white students, faculty, and staff is extremely uneven, the university intends to “double the number of minority and international students currently enrolled within five years and there will also be a concerted effort to increase black faculty.” There is also debate on the curriculum at the University of Richmond with hopes to increase the level of interest and enrollment in multicultural classes. Not only does the university hope to raise notice in diverse classes, but it also strives to attract and accept more students of color. The University of Richmond believes that this can be done through “academic scholarships available for black students,” and various other grants “in order to increase the pool of qualified applicants for admissions."
