Continuing the Dialogue - An Open Letter
from the Campus Community Centers
Since the events last year, our University community has been involved in a number of conversations, initiatives and efforts to address the campus climate. Stemming from a number of powerful incidents, UC San Diego experienced moments of great pain, as well as national solidarity around the impacts of these kind of events in our community.
We had a very powerful ending to our 2009-2010 academic year, and the work continued through the summer. The efforts of a number of UC San Diego students, faculty, staff and alumni over the summer moved a number of initiatives forward. The Chancellor continues to update http://campusclimate.ucsd.edu regarding specifics outcomes from the March 4th agreements. Furthermore, the Campus Community Centers continue to build community - a hallmark of our core mission and philosophy.
Over the last few months the staff of our Centers have been deeply engaged in work which will continue building community in the new academic year. For example, there was an 8 week social justice seminar series that examined philosophical and practical implications of engaging diverse communities across difference. A week-long social justice Institute provided space for 20 professional staff to deeply examine their own experiences regarding power, privilege, and oppression. In addition, numerous consultations with staff and faculty, as well as trainings and presentations to departments, colleges and other units, kept us deeply committed to the work students initiated in the winter and spring quarter of 2010.
Our year began with Triton Voices, a Welcome Week program which provided an opportunity for the newest members of our community to learn the history of activism at UC San Diego, and dialogue around social justice issues. We invited them to continue dialogue through ongoing vital conversations with each other, and by becoming involved throughout campus. As Campus Community Centers, we continue to work with the communities with whom we are most intimately connected, advancing the initiatives and commitments of our University.
The Campus Community Centers will continue the Social Justice Seminar series this fall, and we have invited a nationally renowned anti-racist speaker, Tim Wise, for the winter. In addition, staff of the Campus Community Centers serves on the Chancellor's Campus Climate Council of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. We continue to ensure these issues are addressed in all areas of the university.
We invite you to join us in these efforts. Subscribe to our electronic newsletters, frequent our spaces, engage with our staff to continue the dialogue. In this way, we will build the socially just community on campus in which we want to belong.
The Women's Center, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, and the Cross-Cultural Center are collectively known as the Campus Community Centers. We are grounded in a shared belief that ending one oppression requires ending all oppressions. Together we facilitate interactive learning, promote self-awareness, foster leadership development, encourage dialogue, and challenge traditional notions of diversity. The Campus Community Centers work with undergraduate and graduate students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the San Diego Community. Through these partnerships, we build and sustain a socially just campus climate.
