Business Journal, August 19, 2003
Welcome back! With this issue, we begin the second volume of our monthly newsletter. Needless to say, much has happened in California since our last issue: unprecedented and devastating budget cuts for education and other social services, the failure to resolve the fiscal crisis facing the state (meaning potentially more budget cuts next year), the start of a gubernatorial recall election, and the scheduling of the Racial Privacy Initiative for the Fall ballot.
As we reach the end of the academic year and my first year as director, I want to take the opportunity to thank the many people who have contributed to our programs and our mission.
The headline in the Los Angeles Times said it all: "Minority Admissions Rise in UC System but Fall at UCLA."
On February 13, we proposed a Faculty Diversity Initiative to UCLA Chancellor Albert Carnesale, followed the next week by a town hall with community members in order to discuss the proposal and the underlying educational issues and challenges facing our increasingly diverse state.
On February 13, the four ethnic studies centers at UCLA, including the CSRC, submitted a faculty diversity initiative to Chancellor Albert Carnesale.
"The four ethnic research centers at UCLA will unveil a proposal today asking the university for additional faculty to help the centers keep pace with California’s growing minority population."
