UC to spend more money on diversity

Updated: Wednesday, December 4 2013, 09:35 AM EST
CINCINNATI (AP) - The University of Cincinnati is pumping more money into efforts to increase diversity, as some black students raise concerns about race relations on the urban campus.
    
UC this week announced $440,000 in new annual investments to promote and support diversity in the student population. That money will go to scholarships for women and students of color.
    
The school says other new investments focused on recruiting, retaining and graduating a diverse population will be coming in the weeks ahead.
    
Some black students have complained about the racial atmosphere in the aftermath last month of the resignation of the Arts & Sciences dean, a leading black academic official at the school. A racially offensive cartoon had circulated on campus amid criticism of the dean. A protest was held last month.
    
Blacks comprise 8.2 percent of UC undergraduate students.
