Students Occupy Seattle University Dean’s Office

Katherine Long, Seattle Times, May 11, 2016


In a lengthy petition posted online, the students describe the college’s curriculum as “Eurocentric and Classical in nature, damaging, stifling, and failing to align with content taught elsewhere in the University.” They are asking for a new curriculum, for the college to recruit and hire professors from diverse backgrounds, and for every faculty member undergo training from an anti-racist network in Seattle.

They are also asking the dean to resign and said they were prepared to occupy the office until she does so.
