Action will change school mascot, not open forums and other talks

Author:

At Thursday’s “Chippewa” nickname forum, all the panelists agreed that Central Michigan University’s nickname, used for all athletics teams, needs to change. They cited that the nickname is offensive to Native American people, and that the change would not be quick. Instead of holding forums and talking about how the nickname needs to be changed, students and faculty that feel strongly about the nickname should act now to begin the name-changing process.
