ULS Policy Growth Survey
It is clearly unacceptable that ULS student claims of racism which were made in accordance with the United Lutheran Seminary Student Handbook were consistently mishandled and delayed so that these claims had to be filed multiple times and their outcomes took over five months to be realized. The open wounds of these delays which continue to this day and perpetuate a culture of unsafe experiences must stop! You may read this survey's partner document "A Timeline of Racism at United Lutheran Seminary" here: http://www.seasonandstory.com/uls-racism/

Here are seven suggested policy changes we request of the Board of Trustees. You may check which policies you deem worthy of being added to ULS by utilizing the check boxes following each policy. Your response will be recorded and sent to President Green, Dean Sebastian, Board Chair Rev. Peter Boehringer, Bishop Guy Erwin (Chair of the Board's Diversity Committee) and Dr. Mark Kelly Tyler (Urban Theological Institute representative on the Diversity Committee).
