Facing Segregation in the 21 Century Through Campus Programs


A newspaper article which discusses minority communities and the programs which support them at Ursinus College.


“Facing Segregation in the 21st Century Through Campus Programs” is a newspaper article written by Tom Nucatola published March 24, 2011 The Grizzly. In the article Nucatola expresses that SPINT Housing designed for specific racial and sexual groups and the W.R. Crigler Institute as inherently racist and self-segregating. This includes the American History and Africana Studies house, Cloake, created in 2010 which seeks to house students interested in American/ Africana studies. Although Nucatola recognizes that the house is open to all students, he fears these communities will seek protection in these spaces. He goes on to say, that the creation of said communities will intensify racial and sexual tensions and delay tolerance and understanding of such groups on campus. Instead, Nucatola criticizes the programs that these communities host which he sees as no substitute for real interactions with people different from you. This disapproval of SPINT Housing, especially Cloake, uncovers some of the negative feelings towards those interested in AAAS and reveals the stigma that only racial minorities are interested in such topics.
