SF State Sets a New Standard in Campus Discourse– With Occupy SF State

Unlike the administrators and police at other campuses (UCs Berkeley and Davis, for instance), SF State’s President Robert Corrigan set the standard for campus discourse with his engaged dialogue with recent Occupy SF State students this month.  Students continue to occupy the campus, with a small group of tents near the Student Center.   Some students commented they were living on in the spirit of the 1968 SF State Strike, the first ever strike by university faculty members.  That strike resulted in the creation of the country’s only College of Ethnic Studies, which still exists today.
