It is my pleasure to announce that the Ethnic Studies 5th Account is now active for the Spring semester of 2013!
What is the 5th Account?
The 5th account is a source of money made available for student groups on campus to seek assistance for programming and events that reflect the Ethnic Studies vision. The Ethnic Studies Department was created with the vision that people of color would overcome the discrimination they faced and rise above the socioeconomic, political, and historical barriers that have kept them oppressed since the beginning of this country’s history. The Ethnic Studies Department will only fund events that are all-inclusive of different ethnic communities. We believe in funding events that educate various communities about what the founders and students of Ethnic Studies believe in.
Where can you apply?
