He was a UCLA Philosophy professor.
Gee, guys, insecure much??
@Waldorf actually it proved my point...USC people do not seek or need validation from brunes? Why would they care if guys like Stalindork believed them? Brunes, on the other hand, need USC in order to bolster their own insecurities...
@thesquat Wow...that went completely over your head. Okay, forget it.
@Waldorf actually, it looks as if it went completely over the brune heads, not mine...
Could be an anteater? Or a gaucho??
or maybe a banana slug???
idk they found him in the default Bruin position there in the beginning. I think they got the right man there.
@Waldorf the ancient days of UCLA being new-fresh, rich, with top professor recruiting ability, in a growing thriving state and with high standards are long over. UCLA admits brown folks willy nilly and is committed to being fully brown over other issues. Brown first quality second. UCAL accepts the low-end of the bell curve.

Becoming a Hispanic-Serving Institution by 2025
Campus PolicyCampus UpdateDear Bruin Community:
Over the past year, a UCLA task force has been assembling a strategic action plan to determine how our institution could become federally designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). Today, we are announcing the goal of having UCLA designated as an HSI by 2025.
As an HSI, our institution would qualify for a range of federal grants that would bolster our educational programs and benefit Latinx communities and all others on our campus. Research has shown that HSI designation strengthens interracial relations among all students, improves academic performance and attendance of students of color, and increases their likelihood of graduation.
The decision to pursue the federal HSI designation, which requires that 25% of our students identify as Latinx, is tied to our public responsibility in light of changing demographics in California and throughout the country. One million Latinx young people will turn 18 this year and every year for the next two decades in the United States; these students are important to our nation’s future, and we must ensure they are positioned to succeed and to lead.
Our Hispanic-Serving Institution Task Force — co-chaired by Professor of Sociology Vilma Ortiz, Professor of Education Sylvia Hurtado and Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Partnerships Alfred Herrera — has worked over the past year to prepare us to reach and maintain HSI status. In the next several years, we will partner with units across campus to help us achieve this goal. Efforts will include forging a stronger pipeline between UCLA and high schools and community colleges serving large Latinx populations as well as building up our campus support infrastructure for Latinx students.
Latinx Californians make up a larger percentage of our state’s population than do any other ethnic group. As a public institution, UCLA has a heightened obligation to ensure that we are doing all we can to make sure this is a campus that truly welcomes members of our Latinx communities, honors their intellectual and cultural contributions and supports their success. We embrace this obligation, just as we embrace the obligation to serve all of the diverse people that make up our state, and will remain vigilant to ensure that UCLA achieves these goals.
