The University of Michigan acknowledged its campuses are not immune to systemic racism, and president Mark Schlissel said one solution is recruiting more prospective black students.

Schlissel made the remarks in a one-hour virtual town hall broadcast Friday on YouTube.

“We need to be smarter about ways to grow the black student population,” he said. “We need to develop better ways to identify and mentor talented kids who want to go to college and can see themselves here.”
