On July 25th, the Tulane Black Student Union and other organizations (listed below) published a list of demands and expectations for Tulane University Administration in relation to furthering the community toward antiracism. CollegeFit fully supports these demands. Please read our message of support in its entirety below.
CollegeFit stands in solidarity with Tulane Black Student Union (@thebsu), Black Queer Collective (@blackqueercollective), the African American Women’s Society (@aaws_tu), the National Society for Black Engineers (@tulanensbe), the Alliance of Black Business Students (@tuabbs), and Les Griots Violets (@lesgriots_violets) in their demands and expectations for Tulane.
As an organization and nonprofit dedicated to creating equity in college admissions, CollegeFit views the demands voiced by our fellow students as paramount to our mutual missions of empowering students in higher education. We recognize that Tulane has taken steps toward antiracist policies but believe that it is crucial to continue by supporting initiatives for greater change. We urge you to read every word carefully and take action accordingly. There is more that can and should be done for Tulane to become a healthier, more equitable environment for all. We write this not out of enmity with Tulane, but because we care for our university.
It is our great hope that Tulane University will stand on the right side of history and become the standard for our peer institutions.
