You cannot claim to prioritize diversity until you prove that you prioritize diversity. I was drawn to UP, like I am sure many other students from families of color were, through the promise of diversity. The surface level of that promise was fulfilled; the website and school president both proudly claim that the class of 2022 is the second most diverse class yet. And we are.
Last week the UP chapel hosted a tribute to the cells that were lost to abortions this year. Posters, books, pamphlets and flyers were posted outside the doors so that any passerby could see.
