The College of Ethnic Studies is organizing a year-long series of events to commemorate the 1968-1969 student-led strikes. Our aim is to highlight the social justice movements that gave birth to and continue to support the principles upon which the College stands, and to promote the further development of the field of Ethnic Studies. Our main Fall semester event was on November 8-10, 2018. The main Spring semester event will be on March 21-23, 2019. Those two months mark the beginning and end dates of the BSU/TWLF student-led strike that resulted in the creation of the College.
