Storyboard Text

  • UA Guerrero Center: Welcome Students! Bienvenido!
  • Hey Maya!
  • Hey Joe!
  • AASA
  • Joe: Isn't it so cool that we have all of these student cultural centers here at the UA, like:
  • Maya: It's great! All students, no matter their cultural identity can go to the centers or take classes to learn about other cultures, or even more about their own.
  • Joe: Plus we have the different ethnic studies programs about african-americans, mexican-americans, native americans, etc.
  • Guerrero Center
  • *GASP* Oh no, that's horrible!
  • President Robbins
  • President Robbins: Hello students! For this new year, the football team needs new gym equipment and a new deluxe spa. So we will be getting our funding for this project by cutting  the funding for the ethnic studies programs, and the student cultural centers!
  • Let us tell you about why ethnic studies programs and cultural centers are so relevant for ALL students. Maybe you'll change your mind about cutting them.
  • Joe: Yeah, and did you know that research studies have shown that students of all ethnicities benefit from the critical thinking learning that is prioritized in ethnic studies programs.
  • Huh, really?
  • Maya: Many people in history have fought and protested for higher education to embrace the cultural knowledge that ethnic minorities carry. For example, in 1968 multiple student groups came together to form the Third World Liberation Front (TWLF), and they had the longest strike in U.S. history. The TWLF fought for higher education to be inclusive of the culture and history of ethnic minorities, which is part of what ethnic studies programs are meant for.
  • Maya: Cultural centers are like a second home to many students, especially for those who are first=generation students. They are places where they can get guidance about college, rest, study, hang out with friends, etc. They are also a place where students can connect with a community that values their culture, meet faculty, attend workshops, and get more connected to the university. If a student feels valued and understood at their university, they're more likely to stay and graduate.
  • UA Guerrero Center: Welcome Students! Bienvenido!
  • Ethnic studies programs and cultural centers usually work and hold events together.
  • Yeah, Woohoo!! We love ethnic studies, and our cultural centers!
  • President Robbins
  • President Robbins: Thanks to you students, I have seen how important UA's ethnic studies programs  and cultural centers are to the enrichment of ALL of our students lives'. Instead of paying for a new gym and spa, I'll have the football team take an ethnic studies class, and visit the centers!
