Protests Hit Two Black College Campuses

At Clark Atlanta University, students marched on campus to propose a 5 percent hike in tuition. The increase was announced after 153 students were told they could not enroll next semester because they were behind on their tuition payments.

At Mississippi Valley State University in Itta Bena, the faculty senate agreed to a vote of no confidence in university president Lester C. Newman. Among the complaints against Dr. Newman, according to the resolution passed by the faculty senate, are a lack of professional courtesy, disregard to the academic calendar, removing department chairs without due process, and inconsistency in faculty pay.
