Yale holding Teach-in to support Mexican American students in Tucson

This coming Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012, there is a Teach-In at Yale in support of the Mexican American students in TUSD.

William L. Harkness Hall
Organized by Theodore Van Alst, Dean of Native Students at Yale, the Teach-In is a panel composed of the following individuals:
  • Alicia Schmidt Camacho, Associate Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity, Race & Migration
  • Stephen Pitti, Professor of History & American Studies, Director of Ethnicity, Race & Migration
  • Birgit Brander Rasmussen, Assistant Professor, American Studies
  • Debbie Reese, American Indians in Children's Literature

The panel begins at 7:00 PM at William L. Harkness Hall, room 119.

Though New Haven is a long way from Tucson, I think Yale would be smart to send someone to TUSD to encourage students from the now-banned MAS program to apply to Yale.
