Thursday, September 30, 2010
11:30amConvocation
Cone Chapel
Ethnic studies education, from K-12 through graduate school, are being attacked and eliminated across the United States. At Willamette, we support educational programs like Ethnic Studies because they create vibrant intellectual discourse, they bring attention to some of the most significant social issues of our times, and they prepare our students to contribute to building socially just communities. This panel discussion will illuminate the need to expand - not ban - ethnic studies education.
