Local News in Brief : UCLA Policies Protested

About 400 UCLA students protested Wednesday what organizers called “a well-coordinated plan of attacks by the university” against affirmative action and ethnic studies programs on the Westwood campus.

Students representing more than 30 campus organizations gathered at noon on the steps of Campbell Hall, which houses the school’s ethnic studies program, holding signs that said “Diversity or Racism” and “Tenure for Minority Faculty Now!”

The students said they were demonstrating against the administration’s attempt to restructure the Academic Advancement Program, the university’s support program for minority and low-income students, and the denial of tenure to Don Nakanishi of the Graduate School of Education.
