Chicago, IL (Reuters) - Dean of Students John Ellison handed in his resignation today after a letter he wrote to new students was published by local media. BLM activists had staged a protest in response to the letter and demanded Ellison apologized and resigned from his position of Dean of Students. Representatives of BLM were offered a chance to express their concerns to the university's Board of Directors, who then spoke to Ellison afterwards. During that meeting Ellison, who is white, acknowledged that his actions could be regarded as racist and agreed that an apology and resignation was in order. The University also announced that it would indeed provided Safe Spaces for the new academic year and said that it welcomed the chance to work together with BLM to make the campus a place where minorities could and should feel safe.
