The staff for Ibram X. Kendi’s Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University will be smaller this school year after recent layoffs.
Boston University confirmed to FOX News Digital on Thursday that the center laid off approximately 15 to 20 staff members in what it called an "evolving" process.
"The Center is evolving to a fellowship model. Dr. Kendi remains the Director. We can confirm that there were layoffs at the Center. The University and Center are committed to working with and supporting affected employees as they look for their next opportunities," Boston University PR Associate Vice President Rachel Lapal Cavallario said in a statement.
