NEW HAVEN, Ct. – Kahlil Greene, a junior, has made history by being the first black elected student body president in the university’s 318 years.

Yale University’s demographic is 46.2 percent white and only 5.72 percent Black. Greene, a double major in economics and politics from Maryland, told a Fox Affiliate, “I think that we can be a more diverse and inclusive campus, and I’m grateful for the role I’ll have in making it happen.”

Greene added that his election is proof of “the progress the university has made over the years for the journey we still have ahead of us.”
