This blog is maintained by the CRES Student Working Group (which consists of both undergraduate and graduate students) in order to document the ongoing struggle for Ethnic Studies at the University of California Santa Cruz. We maintain only this blog and do not have any affiliation with other blogs or media about UCSC.
We recognize that students have been working around Ethnic Studies for multiple decades and at many levels of the university. We claim no ownership over any movement or material that is produced. We ask that any material used from the blog is cited and used only for educational purposes, but most importantly that it is done with honor and respect for the many people who labored in the struggle for Ethnic Studies.
We would also like to point out that the name Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) was created to acknowledge the intellectual development of Ethnic Studies since the beginning of this struggle. The name came from countless meetings and hours with many different graduate students, faculty, and undergrads.
