    UConn Student Newspaper Launches New Column for Underrepresented and Marginalized Groups

    UConn Student Newspaper Launches New Column for Underrepresented and Marginalized Groups

    “The column is open to ‘students of color, women, persons with disabilities and the LGBTQIA+ community,’ according to the Campus.”

    The column is apparently going to be anonymous and is not intended to be used as a ‘call-out’ tool.

    The College Fix reports:

    UConn student newspaper rolls out column for underrepresented and marginalized groups

    The Daily Campus, the student newspaper at the University of Connecticut, has rolled out a new, anonymous column for minority students to “discuss their stories and experiences as members of those groups at UConn.”

    Students can anonymously submit a column, poem, or even a piece of artwork, to describe their experience as a minority on campus. The column is open to “students of color, women, persons with disabilities and the LGBTQIA+ community,” according to the Campus.

    The paper is trying to draw attention to the submission form, as the column appears as a pop-up on the paper’s homepage, and features prominently on the online opinion page.

    The column is not intended to be a “call out space” — the editors will not release the names or other information about fellow students. Furthermore, the website directs students to report incidents of discrimination to campus police or the Dean of Students’ “bias incident protocol.”
