AB540 Task Force Meeting with Fred Wood and Griselda Castro

Posted: July 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hello everyone,

Today we had a meeting with Fred Wood and Griselda Castro on the topic of creating a Task Force to address AB540 issues on campus.  The student attendees included Nayelli Casarrubias (SPEAK), Andrea Delgadillo, Marisol Ornelas, Sebastian Zuniga, as well as Raul Navarro.  It was a preliminary meeting, but Fred Wood and Griselda Castro had been looking into the different possibilities for providing services for our AB540 comrades.  The task force will address the issues that AB540 students face on campus and will work to fix them.  The discussion included the strong possibility of an AB540 Resource Center which besides providing needed resources such as financial aid and scholarship information, could possibly include student internship opportunities, a CAN advisor, a GSR (grad student researcher), etc.  The topic of where this center could be located was also discussed and left as options.  We see great progress as we move forward and we wish to create the best experience for students as possible.
