Students began a sit-in in President Christopher Eisgruber ’83’s office today to support demands that include acknowledging the “racist legacy” of Woodrow Wilson 1879 and renaming the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Wilson College. The students are also seeking cultural competency training for all staff and faculty, required courses on the history of marginalized peoples, and a cultural space on campus specifically for black students. They vowed to continue the sit-in until Eisgruber signs their list of demands. Eisgruber and Dean of the College Jill Dolan met with the students soon after the sit-in began.
