The time to discuss a critical race and ethnic studies (CRES) program has come. On May 22, at 7 p.m. in the Stevenson Fireside Lounge, there will be a public forum to discuss CRES. Faculty, students and other staff are all invited to attend and share their thoughts on what a CRES program should look like. Alice Yang, provost of Stevenson College, has helped to set up this forum and said that now is the time to create this program.
“We want to engage as many faculty, students, and staff as we can at this forum and encourage their participation as we go forward,” Yang said. “Recent incidents, such as the ‘Cinco de drinko’ facebook posting and racist graffiti on bathrooms throughout campus, show that UCSC could really benefit from having a critical race and ethnic studies program now.”
