“Marquette will work toward creating a Black Living Learning Community in a residence hall”
This is also being pushed at New York University. Progressives in higher education are intent on reversing the work of the Civil Rights movement.

Marquette explores blacks-only housing plan, hate speech punishment
Marquette University has joined its fellow Catholic institution Loyola University Chicago in considering blacks-only housing.
The Catholic college in Milwaukee announced an update in early September on a number of demands from the Black Student Council at Marquette, including a pledge to explore a “Black Living Learning Community” and ways to punish “hate speech.”
The student activist group had asked the university for a number of demands in a July Change.org petition that garnered 1,500 signatures.
“Marquette will work toward creating a Black Living Learning Community in a residence hall,” campus administrators said in their September 3 update to the community. Learning communities “bring together students with common majors or common interests” and are offered to freshmen and sophomore students, according to the school’s residence life office website. There is currently a Latino learning community.
The school will also “review and revise, as needed, current policies regarding hate speech and racist behaviors to better allow for effective enforcement,” according to the statement from university President Michael Lovell and Provost Kimo Ah Yun. The review and revision is geared toward improving “the campus environment for all students and employees.”
Though the update first came out on September 3, the school has still yet to provide further details on its plans. The College Fix reached out three times via email to media relations officials seeking comment on the plan in the past week but has yet to receive a response on how the school plans to punish hate speech and how it plans to implement the Black Living Learning Community.
