It’s quite amazing how a Political Science student could display such ignorance in regards to her fellow Asian colleagues at UCLA.
Meet Alexandra Wallace….
What was the UCLA administration’s response?
“Naples said he personally received more than 100 e-mails of complaint from individuals all over the country, primarily from people affiliated with UCLA.The university has yet to get in contact with Wallace, but hopes to meet with her as soon as possible to determine the appropriate response, Naples said”
“Alexandra Wallace released the following statement to the Daily Bruin: “Clearly the original video posted by me was inappropriate. I cannot explain what possessed me to approach the subject as I did, and if I could undo it, I would. I’d like to offer my apology to the entire UCLA campus. For those who cannot find it within them to accept my apology, I understand.”
We would like you all to look at the UC diversity statement:
“Diversity should also be integral to the University’s achievement of excellence. Diversity can enhance the ability of the University to accomplish its academic mis…sion. Diversity aims to broaden and deepen both the educational experience and the scholarly environment, as students and faculty learn to interact effectively with each other, preparing them to participate in an increasingly complex and pluralistic society. Ideas, and practices based on those ideas, can be made richer by the process of being born and nurtured in a diverse community. The pluralistic university can model a process of proposing and testing ideas through respectful, civil communication. Educational excellence that truly incorporates diversity thus can promote mutual respect and make possible the full, effective use of the talents and abilities of all to foster innovation and train future leadership.”
This video is a perfect example of how the UC has failed it’s mission at maintaining diversity in the university– what kind of leaders is this institution creating.
