What is the diversity collaborative?
The civil rights gains of the 1960s and 70s gave rise to the diversity departments at City College of San Francisco. These departments strengthen each other by working together in the Diversity Collaborative. Our programs grew out of various social struggles, such as the United Farmworker's Movement, the Disability Rights Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, the Women's Liberation Movement, and the Stonewall Riots.
- Historical Legacy:
The Third World Strikes at San Francisco State University (1968) and U.C. Berkeley (1969) led to the establishment of Ethnic Studies departments at universities and colleges across the nation.
Departments devoted to gender,
sexuality, class, and disability studies benefited from the victories
of the Ethnic Studies movement.
- Intersecting Identities:
We are proud of the intersectional
analysis at the foundation of the City College of San Francisco
Diversity Collaborative where students learn how their multiple
identities contribute to the richness of their lives and provide
strength to our continuing struggles for social justice.
