Pennsylvania state senator releases report of ‘severe’ racism at state universities

According to The Quad, the report titled “ENOUGH” is the culmination of an “18-month-long listening tour” of the 14 schools that make up the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, or PASSHE.

State Senator Art Haywood and Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission Executive Director Chad Lassiter visited the schools between 2022 and 2023 and garnered over 170 comments from about 100 students regarding “racist speech, stereotyping, inequitable educational opportunities and inadequate faculty representation.”

“Black and brown students in the state system are alienated from the campus community in ways that are damaging to the students personally, to the Black and brown school community, and to the schools collectively,” the report says according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
