Students protest at Seton Hall University over diversity funding
Dozens of protesters at Seton Hall University are in the midst of a sit-in over what some students say is discrimination on campus, a lack of diversity and a lack of inclusion.
The protesters are rallying around campus and marching through the school’s libraries and cafes.
“I feel like I haven’t had my voice heard. I feel like I haven’t been valued as a student,” said one of the protesters.
They say they are mistreated because they are students of color.
“This has built up over a long period of time,” said student protester Chris Duran. “A lot of us have been here for four years. We have dealt with seeing racist incidents on campus go completely unaddressed. No accountability whatsoever. We have seen institutional problems with the university regarding its curriculum.”
They are on day two of a three-day sit-in at the administration building of Seton Hall’s South Orange campus, demanding better treatment for minority students and adequate funding for courses on diversity.
The sit-in also calls for changes to the school’s system for handling complaints about discrimination.

Translation: “When I got here, thanks to affirmative action, I soon realized I was way in over my head. Seton Hall needs to lower its academic standards to my comfort level.”
