13 March, 1969
Despite a tense campus atmosphere following demonstrations, the Claremont colleges moved forward with the Black Studies Center in March. The intercollegiate committee was expected to submit a detailed plan for the center by March 31, 1969, so that it could be implemented by fall semester of the same year. The Black Student Union was successful in creating tangible change on the campuses. Specific gains include the admission of more students of color, the hiring of more Black faculty members, and the addition of Black Studies courses to the offerings.
