Hi! In this time where racism is a big conversation, sports team names and iconography have come up here and there. As a Shen alum, I of course thought about my school’s sports team the Plainsmen. I was just wondering if there were plans or at least a conversation happening about changing the name to something not based on native americans? If not, how could we start the conversation?

A. Plainsmen are all of the people who roam the plains…it does not refer to a specific nationality.
