In the News
FLI students at Pomona College are part of a larger conversation to bring about real and substantial change in the way colleges and universities across the nation provide the necessary resources for marginalized students. Elite institutions like the Claremont Colleges have a history of excluding certain groups of people because of their race, sexuality, gender, or class. As their admissions teams bring in more diverse classes, students from marginalized backgrounds find it difficult to navigate these spaces and their colleges lack the necessary resources to ensure the mental and physical well-being of their students. As a result, students across the United States organize to bring attention to their institution’s failure to guarantee the success of every student.
Student activists from all over are fighting issues of food insecurity, high tuition costs, and the persisting legacies of racism, sexism, and homophobia. The issues that we tackle with at Pomona are similar to those at students at other colleges. Below we have compiled an archive of news articles relating to the recent student-led movements happening at other schools.
