Back to All Stories

The peaceful demonstration in support of inclusivity on Colgate’s campus has come to a mutually agreeable resolution, as members of the administration and the Colgate University Association for Critical Collegians (ACC) released a 21-point road map for the future. The document can be found at a new website Colgate for All.

The sit-in began at 8 a.m. Monday, September 22, and concluded at 12:15 p.m., Friday, September 26.

The road map is a result of constructive conversations between student representatives of ACC, and President Herbst, Provost and Dean of the Faculty Douglas Hicks, and Dean of the College Suzy Nelson. This website will be expanded in the weeks and months ahead to guide meaningful change and share progress and updates.

“As a liberal arts institution, we must do everything we can, together, to create an environment that is welcoming to all students, so that all can freely explore diverse perspectives and worldviews,” said Herbst.

ACC founders said, “Colgate must fulfill its promise of being an inclusive institution for students of all backgrounds. Our hope moving forward is that this new action plan will create lasting change in our campus community.”
