ST. CLOUD (AP) -- Nearly a third of the students at St. Cloud State University say diversity and race relations are the greatest challenge facing the school, according to a new survey.
The survey found that 31 percent of the 527 students surveyed called diversity and race relations the top challenge. Parking ranked second with 20 percent of the students. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
For at least the last two years, St. Cloud State has come under fire for alleged discrimination and retaliation. At least five complaints against the school have been filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
In February, the EEOC issued a report saying, in part, that faculty and staff believed the school suffered from systemic and institutionalized bias, sexism, racism and anti-Semitism.
