To gather reflections of the current feelings students had of UCSD’s campus climate, submissions were solicited through campus flyers, direct communication with student community centers and residential life of each of the colleges, and through collaborations with faculty.
While a few submissions were gathered through general marketing in Fall 2016, a majority came from collaborations with two courses:
- VIS 105A: Drawing
- Culture, Art, and Technology (CAT) 1: Migration Narratives in the Sixth College writing program
Faculty members, Katie Herzog and Amanda Solomon, integrated submitting to the archive into their courses final assignments.
For CAT 1: Migration Narratives, in addition to thinking about how they view the current campus climate, they also responded to the fourth chapter of Angela Kong’s dissertation, “Re-examining Diversity Policy at University of California, San Diego: The Racial Politics of Asian Americans”.
