Jesuit Schools Stand Against, Discuss Racial Injustice

Jesuit Schools Stand Against, Discuss Racial Injustice

Kayman Nixon, president of the Creighton Students Union, joined the student government presidents at the 27 other Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States to “publicly stand in solidarity” against racial injustice within institutions of higher education.

Nixon was one of the signers of the statement, released in March, which called for “all institutions of higher education to stand together and take action in advocating for an end to racial inequality in its many manifestations.”

In addition, faculty from Jesuit colleges and universities will gather at Creighton University in February to discuss issues of race, ethnicity and diversity as part of the 2017 Heartland-Delta Conference, which has a theme of “difficult conversations.”
