NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Dozens of students at the University of Oklahoma have ended a sit-in outside the University’s administrative offices following two instances of professors using racial slurs in the classroom. The three-day sit-in organized by the Black Emergency Response Team, known as BERT, ended on Friday with the student group saying that progress had been made.

OU Dean of Students David Surratt said in a statement on Friday that the students “raised legitimate concerns” and their demands “were actually solutions” the University has included in a strategic plan to be presented to OU regents.
