Over half of the diverse faculty and staff members at the College of Wooster are leaving. Most of these faculty members had tenure and a secure career here at the College. Many people said that each staff member has their own reasoning but the numbers are quite too high for this to be a coincidence. Is there a degree of racism we have not noticed at the College of Wooster? We speak out against forms of oppression from a student level but in order to change the institution and systematic oppression at the college, the staffing needs to be re-wired as well. The College of Wooster increased their acceptance of black students from 10% to 30% of their population. Without proper support and aid, these students will have a difficult time surviving the Campus climate. There are no diverse staff members in STEM. After a trustee commented “Would you rather have a black professor or a good professor”, the College of Wooster’s mayhem involving diverse faculty members did not stop. The effects of Wooster’s racism is showing and the institution needs to be revamped.
