Occidental Protests and Calls for Diversity on College Campuses

Hosted by

Students who've been occupying the administration building at Occidental College moved to the office of President Jonathan Vietch today. He has refused to step down like his counterpart at the University of Missouri. That action a week ago has helped spread protests over racism and the lack of diversity to campuses around the country, including USC and Claremont-McKenna as well as to Oxy. We hear from both sides.

Later on the program, ridership on the new Expo Line is exceeding expectations, but it's not reducing traffic congestion.
