As part of a diversity awareness initiative passed by the

Associated Students of CSU, a forum discussing affirmative action

at CSU will be held tonight.

The forum, which includes a panel selected from six different

divisions of CSU, will be held in the ASCSU Senate Chambers from

5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday night.

Alex Sanchez, the associate director of advocacy for ASCSU, said

it will be a “fact-based forum,” allowing students to discuss the

matter and get the facts on affirmative action as it applies to

CSU.

“It’s an opportunity for students to come and ask questions,”

said Sanchez, a senior studying business. “This is a program that’s

open to community members, students and staff.”

The panel includes representatives from Faculty Affairs, Student

Affairs, the Office of Equal Opportunity, Admissions, Student

Financial Services and the associate General Counsel.

“I think every member has different views based on their

different offices,” Sanchez said. “They’re the voice of CSU and

represent views at CSU.”

Students will be allowed to submit questions on note cards and

also by e-mail, Sanchez said.

“I encourage students to challenge (the speakers) with their

questions,” Sanchez said. “There’s a need to engage in

discussion.”
