DIVERSE ISSUES IN HIGHER EDUCATION -- Emil Guillermo is a journalist and commentator. He writes for the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund and is an adjunct professor at San Francisco State University.

“I’m driving across the country and it’s amazing how even in the summer, campuses seem like oases from the chaos in American life.

“When I drive through a campus district, or even a whole town or city where the university is a major institution, I always get that special feeling, that sense of comfort.

“I may not have felt that after a bad class as a student or as an adjunct. But I feel that now.”
