After Several Racial Incidents at the University of California at San Diego, Black Students and the Administration Agree on Steps to Increase Diversity

After a series of racial incidents disrupted the campus of the University of California at San Diego, the Black Student Union and the university administration have agreed on common goals to increase racial diversity on campus. The agreement calls for targeted recruitment plans to increase the number of black students and faculty. The university, which is less than 2 percent black, is prohibited by state law from considering race in student admissions or faculty hiring.

The university administration also agreed to establish more classes on subjects relating to diversity and to rewrite the student code of conduct to discourage any similar racial incidents in the future.
