Igniting innovation: University of California in the summer

August 2, 2023

UC Berkeley had one of the nation’s first ethnic studies departments. This summer, its leadership continues with the High School Ethnic Studies Initiative, tailored for high school educators interested in teaching this important course. Through a comprehensive curriculum encompassing concepts, content and community building, participating educators have an opportunity to refine their teaching approaches and develop engaging course content with the guidance of faculty and librarians from the UC Berkeley Ethnic Studies Library.
