Brian Batugo signed PETITION SFSU College Of Ethnic Studies via Ryth Mendez 2016-03-02 08:49:22 -0800I support Ethnic Studies because it humanizes the experience of communities of color too often marginalized from U.S. and World History courses in the K-12 curriculum. It promotes a critical lens to read history and encourages action and positive change in the surrounding community. Ethnic Studies saves and transforms lives. We should be looking into how to bring this to other educational institutions, not explore ways to cut it.

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.
