Should the French terms be bolded? ~ Dpr 09:27, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit]

This article is read like an advertisement! Could someone please flag and/or change it? --84.146.200.200 18:53, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

I agree whole heartedly. The bias in this article ain't no secret.

Reads like a description of a university/institution. Assuming that these problems have been addressed, I'm removing the warning tags. Please add specific concerns here if there are more problems.T L Miles (talk) 05:43, 22 December 2007 (UTC)


I cut out the lengthy advertisements recently and neglected to remove the tags. The article prior to 19 Dec 2007 was clearly written by someone affiliated with the university and promoting the American study abroad program it hosts. I removed the irrelevant majority of the article and reorganized the rest.

Aside from grammar, usage, etc., however, I have not actually altered the remaining content as the university's website is in French, which I do not understand. Considering the heavy bias and poor English in the original, I would expect that the article is not entirely accurate. While I made stylistic corrections, there were places throughout where the intended meaning was unclear. It would be nice if a French speaker could look over this. -- 71.146.89.17 (talk) 07:03, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I checked the content against both the university website (I read French), and some other international orgs. I know it sounds a bit lauditiry, but it really is one of the most prestigious universities in Africa (and THE most in Francophone West Africa). I'm going to remove the inaccuracy tag, but please put it back if you continue to have concerns. Adding specifics here will help us address them. Thanks for your care in doing this: wikipedia needs such careful editors!. T L Miles (talk) 14:49, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Violence[edit]

I have included information about violent incidents in this university talk page as well, in order to ensure that they are kept in place and edited as appropriate. Violence The university has had a number of notable incidents of violence. A Senegalese LGBT organization noted in 2016 that ten cases of homophobic mob violence had occurred at the university since 2012[9]. One of these, following a riot at the university, resulted in the death of the student who was suspected to be gay [10]. The riot followed an attempt to apprehend the student, who had sought refugee in the university's bank and security office[11] Separately, self-immolations and clashes between students and police have been reported after students unsuccessfully demanded scholarships or challenged grading schemes.Greeneditor491 (talk) 06:25, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
