The University of Connecticut has been on the receiving end of growing criticism over its plans for a wing dedicated to housing black males inside a new dorm building.

It’s billed as a living-learning community for black students, some sort of safe space, with campus officials suggesting such an arrangement will help them get through college.

But the plans have prompted a complaint to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights to test their legality, Education Dive reports.
