CFA Stands with Xochitl Sandoval

Xochitl Sandoval, an Illinois student of indigenous ancestry, has written an open, compelling letter highlighting the difficult circumstances under which she pursued a degree.

As the campus celebrates Inclusive Illinois week, we would like to remind you that a central goal of the Campus Faculty Association (CFA) is to make every week at Illinois inclusive.

The CFA gives faculty a voice to advocate for accessibility, inclusion and a secure campus climate, and is not beholden to outdated symbols and stereotypical caricatures.  In many respects, the CFA is free to advocate for academic freedoms unencumbered by political pressures, and hopes to be part of the at-large community fighting for inclusion and equality.
