UVM students push to meet with president on diversity

Sep 26, 2017 by

University of Vermont students pressured the school’s top administrator to address what they believe to be systemic racial injustice at a noon rally Monday at the Dudley Davis Student Center.

President Tom Sullivan responded to Black Student Union, Alianza Latinx and the Asian Student Union demands late Monday night, inviting the student representatives to talk with him and other “key UVM administrative leaders.”

A host of the event, UVM sophomore and Black Student Union President Harmony Edosomwan, wrote Monday on her Facebook page that a protest would be held Tuesday at the Waterman Building, pending the university administrator’s response.

Edosomwan later said that the Waterman protest was on hold. She wrote in an email the talks will begin on Wednesday.
