Title

“Council Rejects Racial Harassment Policy”

Description

Racial tensions and discrimination were high in the Spring of 1990, and students requested that the school create a policy to address racial harassment. Cathy Kramer, the Associate Dean of Students developed a proposal to present to the Central Administrative Committee which “prohibits verbal or written abuse, and includes a detailed list of punishments for violators of the policy”. However, because of the potential violation of first amendment rights, it was rejected by the college. Further discussions were to be arranged regarding this issue.
