SU administrators meeting with protesting students

Syracuse University administrators are meeting with students who have conducted a week-long sit-in to protest what they see as a lack of transparency.
The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that students involved in talks with administrators on Sunday complained the school does not adequately consider student input in making decisions. The sit-in was expected to continue Monday along with more talks with administrators.
The students called the General Body at SU are unhappy with administration decisions to close a center for victims of sexual assault and to reduce funding for an inner-city student leadership program.
The students' demands include increasing accessibility on campus and the university's divestment from fossil fuels.
