Interim Chancellor: Support the Diversity Collaborative Departments. Don't eliminate us!

The City College of San Francisco Diversity Departments

African American Studies
Asian Studies
Asian American Studies
Interdisciplinary Studies
Labor and Community Studies
Latino/a and Latin American Studies
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies
Philippine Studies
Women's Studies

These departments are the product of generations of hard and ongoing civil and human rights struggles. They must not be eliminated or compromised using the excuses of budgetary or accreditation challenges. Their autonomy as separate departments must be maintained.

The Diversity Departments are a unique resource for the college and the wider Bay Area community, enriching students' learning experiences immeasurably and drawing large numbers of students to the school who would otherwise pursue their educations elsewhere. These departments educate and empower our communities. We insist that college leaders now stand by them. Defend the Diversity Departments!
