RATIONALE: AB 1460; signed into law by Governor Newsom August 17, 2020; provides an explicit pathway for implementation of an Ethnic Studies requirement in the CSU. Such an implementation uses shared governance structures that currently exist and allow maximum flexibility for campuses to implement in a way that best supports their students. In contrast, the Title V changes voted on by the CSU Board of Trustees in July are unnecessarily intrusive in their requirement to place an Ethnic Studies course in lower division General Education and to reduce the number of units in lower division Area D, Social Sciences. The Title V changes and subsequent documents released by EVC Blanchard will lead to massive changes in the General Education program at SF State, requiring faculty time and effort at a point faculty attention is focused on learning and implementing new teaching modalities and supporting students in unprecedented ways. In contrast, implementation of AB 1460 would require minimal effort on our campus, because over 75% of our students already take an Ethnic Studies course.
