UA Groups Pressure for Multicultural Center

So far, the University of Alabama administration has wisely resisted calls to create a "multicultural center" on campus. But, the University's "Coalition for Diversity and Inclusiveness" (CDI) isn't taking no for an answer.
The CDI plans to actively lobby UA administrators for the creation of a multicultural center this semester, [CDI President Pat] Bauch said. The CDI will form a group of students who will demonstrate how much they want the center, she said.

Then, when the moment is right, they will use publicity from television and newspapers to try to strong-arm UA officials into creating it, she said.
