Bryn Mawr College administrators caved under student activist pressure after students demanded that a "reparations fund" be created for indigenous and black students. As demanded, the fund will likely double the allocation of funds to the Dean's Emergency Fund (now to be called the "Dean's Student Assistance Fund". Additionally, it will require the Dean to appoint a committee to administer the fund, with representation of BIPOC staff and faculty. No mandatory Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. However, see developments below:
