It will be an opportunity for faculty working with pathways to share best practices and for other faculty to learn about this great work.

This is a reception to honor Kitty Moriwaki upon her retirement, to recognize the MUB 140 permanent art exhibit - created by Sanseis to honor the dignity and courage with which the Issei, Nisei, and young Sansei generations endured the injustices, discrimination, and loss during a racist wartime policy - and to tell the story of the JACL's successful campaign to obtain an apology and restitution for the internment of 80,000 Japanese American families in World War II. 

featured speakers:
  • John Tateishi, former CCSF English faculty, social justice activist, and former National Executive director of the Japanese Americans Citizens League (JACL)

4. Students Needed: Discussion Groups Regarding the CCSF Student Experience

The CCSF Office of Student Equity and Success want to hear from students about their campus and classroom experiences. They have partnered with Harder+Company Community research to conduct group discussions with students on campus. We are currently looking for students to participate in discussions and share their thoughts and ideas for how CCSF can improve the campus and classroom environments.
We are looking to conduct group discussions with students who identify with any of the following groups:
  • Undocumented/AB 540
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, queer, transgender
  • Muslim, Arab, or Middle Eastern
  • Foster youth
  • Veterans
  • Non-US born and attended between 3 & 6 years of middle or high school in the US
  • Having a mental health challenge
  • Having a learning difference or disability
Group discussions will be on-campus. Food and a $25 gift card will be provided. All group discussions will be confidential. 
If you are interested in joining a group, complete a short survey and we will follow-up with details about date, time, and location.
The student populations were chosen as a result of a number of factors, including feedback from students, faculty, staff and administrators. This feedback identified a need for more information in order for CCSF to better understand the strengths, experiences, and challenges students in these populations may be experiencing.

Please contact Shya Castillo at scastillo@harderco.com if you have any questions.
