Students to discuss race with Missouri college officials
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Students at Washington University in St. Louis recommended ways it could become more inclusive to black and Latino students.
The group is called Washington University Students in Solidarity and is set to meet with college officials Monday.
It wanted the university to increase minority enrollment among black and Latino students to 10 percent, up from 6.6 percent and 5 percent, respectively.
Students also asked the college to increase faculty diversity.
Holden Thorp is the university's executive vice chancellor, and he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch none of the requests are unreasonable.
Students said they want the university endorse a civilian oversight board of St. Louis police.
Thorp said the university probably won't take a position to stay politically neutral.
