Title

Opinion "In the future: I predict a riot"

Description

Criticism escalates around the issue of student growth and activism as the writer puts faculty and staff to shame. Grassroots movements are applauded but thought of as impossible at the University of Richmond due to administrative control and lack of growth. The greater Richmond community is placed at fault for the platonic take on topics such as sexual diversity, racial diversity, etc. The University of Richmond campus is compared to Stanford’s campus in that they have a Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity while we fall short of anything remotely similar. The leadership of the university is criticized harshly for, “demonizing the subjective notion of ‘bias’."
