At Harvard University, students are calling on the university to reverse its decision to deny tenure to Lorgia García Peña, who had been the only Latina in a tenure-track position at Harvard. On Monday, dozens of Harvard students held a sit-in at University Hall in support of Garcia Pena, and to demand Harvard create a dedicated Ethnic Studies Department. Over 3,000 students have signed a petition calling on Harvard to reverse its decision and offer Garcia Pena tenure.
