UK students on hunger strike: New resources needed to end food insecurity
Dozens of Kentucky students began occupying the university’s main building late Monday in an effort to provoke action from administrators who they say have ignored growing social issues on campus.
The students are members of two separate groups that have each expressed concerns about the level of assistance available for low-income and minority students.
Both groups say they have met with administrators before to discuss various issues and to present recommendations. But the students say university leaders have thus far not supported their ideas.
