CLIFTON, OH (FOX19) -

The Black Unity Coalition known as BlackUC held a rally on the University of Cincinnati campus.

Members of the BlackUC will walk to President Santa Ono's office to deliver our "Roadmap for Diversity and Inclusion" and to set up a meeting
with President Ono to express the concern and needs of the residential community, students, faculty and staff as well as the Black business community. 

UC Professor Ron Jackson says it’s alarming how few African Americans are at the university.

“As a Black faculty member I feel like that's a problem,” said Jackson. “That people like me here on this campus are being increasingly less valued.”

BlackUC and UC President Santa Ono are set to meet sometime in January.
