U.Va. Students Demand Changes in Wake of Charlottesville Unrest

The deadly violence that erupted last month in Charlottesville, Va., during a white supremacist rally has prompted an assemblage of student groups at the University of Virginia to issue a list of demands to the school’s administration.

The student groups which comprise the Minority Rights Coalition, called for 10 changes such as the removal of Confederate plaques on the university rotunda and the renaming of buildings that honor white supremacists, eugenicists or slave owners.

The students also called for “required education on white supremacy, colonization and slavery,” as well as for the university to substantially increase the black percentage of its student body and faculty.

The complete list of demands can be viewed here.
