Liliana Agredano signed PETITION SFSU College Of Ethnic Studies via 2016-02-24 06:58:19 -0800Being a university of social justice located in one of the most progressive cities, makes us responsible to lead in studies for minorities and cultures the United States grade system has failed to represent. This field of study allows students, even outside of the major, to build on their education and dissipate biases society has imposed on our people. Ethnic studies teaches the truth, the non sugar coated side of history, and helps students understand cultures which is beneficial to society and in any career.5,071 signatures

WE THE UNDERSIGNED WOULD LIKE TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING PROBLEM, WITH RECOMMENDATION(S):
The proposed cuts to 40 percent of the COES budget will wipe out COES support for faculty hiring, research, and modest student resources that have survived a decade of systematic gutting.
These cuts will also impact students enrollment in COES classes and student’s ability to graduate in a timely manner. With a full and expanded budget allocation, not only will this enrich the community of San Francisco State University, but we hope to set an example for public schools, colleges, and universities in all of the United States.
IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE COLLEGE OF ETHNIC STUDIES.
