Latinx Studies Independent Concentration
Signing the following petition shows support for the approval of my Latinx Studies Independent Concentration. After various meetings with university faculty, administrators, and review by committee, my proposal was rejected. This is only adds to the mounting body of evidence displaying Princeton University's lack of dedication and allocation of resources for initiatives that promote a more inclusive Princeton experience and that improve the experiences of students of color on campus.
Not only were their suggestions unfounded [a professor has already agreed to be my JP advisor for the next year and existing departments have told me that my work cannot be fully supported by their resources], but their response shows a common answer to all concerns surrounding Latinx Studies brought to attention.
What is "sufficient to constitute an independent concentration," Princeton?
What are the "factors" and "adjustments" you consider necessary for me to make?
I call for another review of my proposal-- this time-- with a in-person meeting in which I can fully defend my academic pursuits. Check out my proposal here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/15Uk8f-6FSy_UOL...
