As a collective of Texas Christian University (TCU) undergraduate and graduate students from various historically marginalized backgrounds, we are deeply concerned with the allegations against the institution that were raised in the recent lawsuits put forth by “Jane Doe #1” and former TCU faculty member, Dr. Silda Nikaj. Both cases highlight the deep history of unchecked overt and systemic racism that has run rampant at this institution since its founding. As leaders of this university, we call on you to make substantive changes across TCU that will work to transform the campus climate, advance equity, and realize justice through TCU’s meaningful atonement for its white supremacist, patriarchal, classist and ableist past and present. We put forth these demands with the hope that you all will immediately act in good faith. This administration has until Wednesday, February 12, 2020 to publicly respond and commit in writing to our demands. Should our demands not be met, our peers will continue to pressure the university via the legal system and we will continue to exercise our right to protest.
