Student outcry against recent changes in Wesleyan University’s need-blind admissions policy have reached a fever pitch after a group of roughly 50 protestors stormed the sidelines during the university’s homecoming football game on Saturday.
The debate surrounding the issue resulted in two alleged confrontations with President Michael Roth over the weekend both prior to and directly following the demonstration. One case involved a group of students and the other a reporter from liberal news program, Democracy Now!. Concerns over the need-blind policy spilled over into the annual Parents’ Assembly with Roth the following day.
