50th Anniversary (2018-2019)

Newspaper front page 1968
The College of Ethnic Studies is now planning 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 first events in early November 2018 (most likely November 15-17) will focus on the future of historical and current social movements. Events in March of 2019 (most likely March 21-23) will focus on the future of our College and of the field of ethnic studies nationally. The two target months will coincide with the beginning and end of the BSU/TWLF student-led strike that resulted in the creation of the College.
We hope you will join us in any number of ways:
