Reno University Wants To Bring Kaepernick Back To Campus

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The University of Nevada, Reno has announced that it plans to bring Colin Kaepernick back to the campus where he attended college and craft policies to make the campus better for black students, faculty and staff.

The announcement came in response to national protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. University President Marc Johnson said he could not elaborate on when the former NFL quarterback might be brought back to the university.

Johnson says the university plans a public review of campus policing protocols. Protests over Floyd have reignited conversations about oppression and have drawn correlations to Kaepernick's efforts to raise awareness about oppression.
