According to The Towerlight, a group of black students staged a sit-in at University President Timothy Chandler’s office last night. #OccupyTowson quickly trended on social media.

The students presented a list of demands, including increasing the number of black faculty, ensuring equitable police practices for campus events and starting a course on race relations. Instead of a standoff, the eight-hour demonstration became more of a working session, as university staff and the students worked through the demands.

The list of demands was revised twice, but the session produced a document that Chandler ultimately signed. The protesters declared it was “all love,” and Chandler said he didn’t want the conversation to end there.
