Update from a while back ago

Posted: July 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hello everyone, we are going to try keep this blog updated.  We apologize for not updating this particular blog, but the following is a statement that we sent out to various list serves after a meeting with Chancellor Katehi and Dean Owens.

“As was promised to us from administration, we were able to set up a meeting and have a conversation with them regarding our demands and the various issues that are taking place within Hart Hall. A group of students from our community met with administration yesterday, and we were able to bring up student concerns regarding the changes and lack of support for our Ethnic and Gender studies programs as well as the lack of support for AB540 students on campus. We had a productive conversation and offered our recommendations. We hope that change takes place and that our demands are met in a timely manner.

The Chancellor said she will be looking into the budget and looking into the allocation of funds. In addition, Fred Wood, the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs will be contacting students during the summer to begin conversations with forming a task force of student/faculty/staff that will work with the implementation of academic support for AB540 students as well as the possibility of having a resource space for AB540 students on campus. More conversation dealing with FTE’s (full time equivalent) professors for the Ethnic and Gender Studies programs/departments as well as the allocation of space for these programs/departments will continue. As soon as we receive more information, we will relay it back to you.”
