Nebraska News

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Leaders of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have announced a plan to boost inclusion and fight racism.

The plan includes providing regular anti-racist teaching seminars, reviewing the university’s current hiring processes in the context of race and collaborating with Lincoln police to prevent poor treatment of minorities off campus.

Chancellor Ronnie Green and Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion Marco Barker detailed the plan in a campuswide email sent Wednesday.

The plan is part of UNL’s Journey for Anti-Racism and Racial Equity, which began following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020.
