UW-Madison, in an effort to support diversity and inclusion on its campus, houses the Multicultural Learning Community in University Housing. The space is meant to facilitate community discussions about social justice, identities, and multiculturalism. However, University Housing moved to place house fellow Chuefang Yang on paid administrative last year.
Yang allegedly told students to limit the number of white people they invite to a learning community dedicated to students of color on campus. But Yang says that isn’t the case. They argue that those comments were taken out of context and don’t address how Chuefeng is prioritizing students of color and challenging white privilege. Yang has since resigned from their position as a UW Housefellow.
