Vox news story looks at students reporting racism in student life.

Here is the link to Vox

 

Excerpt: Hank Nuwer, founding board member of HazingPrevention.org and an emeritus professor of journalism at Franklin College, is cautiously optimistic. Although he believes disaffiliation can bring good on an individual level, once the students who care about change leave, “You’re left with the students who want to stick with the status quo,” Nuwer said. This means that, while it’s a start, Greek members simply leaving will not solve the problems inherent in Greek life. These problems intersect, Nuwer said, and must be addressed together. “You can’t address just the racism issue, the alcohol issue, or the hazing issue. A myriad number has to all be attacked at once,” he added.
