Dean Ammons Responds to Racial Slurs

October 11th, 2009 No comments

As you may or may not know, some unknown culprit has etched racist slurs  into the men’s bathroom stall last week.   The Dean has responded with a letter calling attention to the importance of diversity in education and its necessary acceptance in our school.  Have our constitutional law and equal protection classes failed in providing a framework for understanding racial issues and complexities? Are the future lawyers of America no longer influenced by the pursuit of civil rights and social justice as they have been in the past?  Or was this heinous act simply a result of Widener’s open door policy to outside visitors using our libraries and facilities? Tell us your thoughts, concerns and comments by submitting a blurb below.
