New York University officials signaled they are open to a student group’s demands to create Black residence floors on campus next year, but the petition is already receiving backlash for proposing students segregate themselves. “[Residential] Life staff have reached out to the authors of the petition to discuss how we might move forward with their goals,” an NYU spokesperson told Washington Square News, NYU’s student newspaper. “Given the COVID-related challenges to the student housing system for 2020-2021, these conversations would be aiming towards 2021-2022.”
