We

demand

that...

  • We demand that fraternities be expelled from areas in which students may have to pass them to and from classes. This may be through the fraternities themselves or by the University of Pennsylvania's administration. 

  • We demand that the University of Pennsylvania permanently purchase land back from on-campus fraternities and vow never to allow Greek housing back on campus again. This should occur on their own accord, but especially if sexual violence allegations and experiences of discrimination are released, incriminating specific groups.

  • We demand that the University of Pennsylvania administration commits to always diversifying Locust Walk, first by reallocating the former fraternity spaces to cultural centers such as PAACH, La Casa Latina, and Makuu.

  • We demand that the University of Pennsylvania more centrally prioritizes the wellness of students by putting Penn Violence Prevention (PVP) in a more accessible space and by creating a satellite Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) mental health wellness center. 

  • We demand that the University of Pennsylvania adopt the platform Callisto to help survivors connect and "detect serial perpetrators of sexual assault and professional sexual coercion," as stated on their website.

  • We demand that the University of Pennsylvania administration and the Faculty Senate adopt a university-wide sexual harassment and cultural diversity training required for all university-affiliated professors.

  • We demand that the University of Pennsylvania mandate comprehensive trainings, to be designed by a team of students and PVP staff, for all fraternities, in addition to trainings already required for sororities by the Panhellenic Council.

  • We demand that the University of Pennsylvania enforce comprehensive trainings, designed by a team of students and PVP staff, for all freshmen during New Student Orientation (NSO). “Speak About It” is not enough.

While this map is just a template, it is a result of our imaginings of what this university could be like should the University prioritize all of our needs. This is map represents a space for the non-white students in a world where our mental, physical health, and financial needs are actually met. I encourage you all reading this to imagine, dream, and then join us in action to create a more equitable campus.
