(CAMPUS REFORM) – The University of California-Santa Barbara is using federal taxpayer dollars to create a “feminist studies” degree program.
An April 13 letter from the Office of the Chancellor explains steps that UC Santa Barbara will take “to make sure that anti-Blackness, which is at the core of all such tragedies as George Floyd's death, does not have a place on our campus and in our community.”
Among these steps is the use of a $3 million Department of Education Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) grant to create a new “4+1” program. The program grants students a bachelor’s degree in ethnic studies or feminist studies, and later, a Master degree and teaching credential in the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education.
