CINCINNATI — The University of Cincinnati’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously Tuesday morning to remove Marge Schott’s name from the university’s baseball stadium and another space in the school’s archive library immediately.

“Marge Schott’s record of racism and bigotry stands at stark odds with our University’s core commitment to dignity, equity and inclusion,” UC president Neville Pinto said. “I hope this action serves as an enduring reminder that we cannot remain silent or indifferent when it comes to prejudice, hate or inequity. More than ever, our world needs us to convert our values into real and lasting action.”
