Sarah Lawrence College facing student protest demands for free food, storage and laundry soap

The president of Sarah Lawrence College is entertaining a a list of demands from student protesters on campus which included free meals, free student storage, mandatory diversity training, no-whites-allowed scholarship and, in a bizarre turn, free, free laundry detergent.

The College Fix reports that Sarah Lawrence College President Cristle Judd issued a statement claiming that the protesters “seek to ensure a truly inclusive environment of respect and support at Sarah Lawrence, especially for students of color and low-income students.”

Noting that she met with student protesters and received their list of demands, Judd indicated that the school might be willing to meet some of those requests.

“I believe collaboration from all parties is the best means to move these efforts forward, and this will require us to develop the most effective process for working with students as well as faculty and staff,” Judd wrote in her announcement.

Some demands were reportedly “off of the table.”

The protesters had requested that a conservative professor on campus, who had written an op-ed highlighting how most college administrators are progressive, be subject to “tenure review” by student activists and “at least three faculty members of color.” Judd unequivocally dismissed this request.

“While recognizing and acknowledging the urgency of many of the concerns expressed in the document, I must also reference the inappropriateness of demands related to the work and tenure of one of our faculty members,” she wrote. She directed readers to a statement on the matter from last November, in which she said that the professor in question “has every right, and the full support of the College, to pursue and publish this work.”
