"Students seek diversity through campus awareness"-October 9, 1987, page 11, The Occidental

Description

The SCCD (Student Committee for Cultural Diversity) is concerned with the lack of black and latino professors on campus and within the administration. There are many "non Western" courses that are taught by white professors and the SCCD feels this is problematic. This article stresses the need to bring awareness to this issue and introduce a more diverse faculty, especially in an effort to embrace a more diverse curriculum.
