Low Numbers, Low Awareness For Support Programs Dampen University Of Iowa Experience For Many Minority Students
The University of Iowa has services and programming to help African American and Latino students feel welcome but a lot of those students don’t know about them, students at a Thursday night IowaWatch/KCRG-TV9 public forum on diversity at the university said. Meantime, these students struggle to exist in a predominantly white campus, African American and Latino students at the forum said. “When you think of universities, you think of white spaces,” Kimberly Chexnayder, a senior from Kansas City, Missouri, said. “It’s so hard for white people to think about their own privileges.” ?
