A petition started by Black student leaders calling for a Black Culture Center on the University of Miami’s campus has been circulating among students. The petition has received more than 1,500 signatures as of March 24.
There are 14,920 students on campus this spring, 1,200 more than in the fall semester. As more students are welcomed back to campus, there have been a spike in COVID cases. Students and faculty discuss the implications of increased campus density.
