Western Kentucky University regents approve diversity plan

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Western Kentucky University regents have approved a five-year plan to promote diversity, equity and inclusion on the Bowling Green campus.

WKU President Timothy C. Caboni says the plan demonstrates the school's willingness to create a culture where everyone can flourish.

Lynne Holland, WKU's dean of students, says the plan focuses on promoting diversity through student recruitment, retention and graduate rates.

It also focuses on fostering a culture of inclusivity on campus.

The plan now goes to the Kentucky Council for Postsecondary Education for approval.

Earlier this year, the university's Student Government Association passed a resolution calling for free tuition for black students as reparations for slavery.
