African-American students at Springfield State wish to build a free-standing African American Cultural Center at a central campus location. Feeling that a free-standing site would promote separatism on campus, the president initially opposes the idea. The campus committee on diversity supports the free-standing site, and the president withdraws his opposition. He must now present the rationale for the decision to the board as well as a set of principles to guide the board in the event of future requests.
