FUSION -- Professors and department chairs from across the university have expressed their solidarity with the college and the hunger strikers by sending letters to the University president urging him to take the students’ demands seriously. “The College of Ethnic Studies transcends bottom line cost-benefit rationales and represents our university societal commitment to providing opportunities to all people, and especially those who have been historically depreciated and neglected, to become constructive, creative, and socially responsible,” read an open letter sent to the university president that was signed by 18 department leaders in the College of Liberal & Creative Arts.
