WHY ETHNIC STUDIES?

To be profitable and successful, businesses and organizations have to embrace diversity. They need to understand a diverse consumer/client population and cater to diverse groups by tailoring their products and services. For this, they need a diverse workforce. Ethnic Studies can help you easily move and work across borders—cultural, religious, racial, or international—and become an attractive job candidate.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH AN ETHNIC STUDIES MAJOR?

Ethnic Studies doesn’t prepare you for a career. It prepares you for multiple career choices! Employers teach you the job skills you need, but they don’t teach you how to successfully navigate an ever-changing and increasingly diverse world.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

First, make an appointment to meet with the Ethnic Studies Academic Program Manager and Advisor, Elizabeth Archuleta, Ph.D.

Hours: 7:00-4:00.

Next, check out our website. Start by clicking here to read more about the major/minor.

Do you take advantage of the Women's Resource Center? Here's an example of what they offer:

They still have some spaces available in the support groups offered at the Women's Resource Center this fall. A combination of WRC staff and clinical practicum students facilitate each group. The groups are open to both University and community members. They charge on a sliding fee scale. If you, or someone you know is interested, please contact the Women's Resource Center at (801) 581-8030. Pre-registration is required, so a timely response is appreciated!

The Women's Resource Center: Sharing the Journey


Finding Our Voice:
Women of Color Discussion Group
Mondays, 5:30-7:00 pm

Are you a woman of color who is struggling to work in a predominantly White campus or community? As women of color who come from a variety of backgrounds (e.g., African American/Black, Latina/Hispanic, Asian American, Pacific Islander, American Indian, Middle Eastern/Arab American, and others), we have experiences that are unique to our individual backgrounds but also hold many common connections. This discussion group can provide a safe place to share some of our struggles as well as some of our ways of coping, strengths, and resources.



Hand to Hand
Tuesdays, 5:30-7:00 pm
The focus of this group is to share the richness and complexity of women’s lives. We live in a world where women’s voices are often silenced. This group offers a place for women to be truly seen and heard and their experiences honored. The group format will include experiential exercises
as well as time to make connections with other women.


Body Politics: Women, Food, and Body Image
Wednesdays 5:30-7:00 pm
It is not surprising that many, if not most women struggle to even consider the possibilities of a peaceful, loving, healthy relationship with their bodies and with food. This group is designed for women of all ages and sizes to explore the personal, interpersonal, and social issues related to food, fat, body image, eating disorders, and self-acceptance. If you want to find a more accepting way to live with food and your body, please join us for a confidential, safe discussion.

LBQQ: Lesbian/Bisexual/Queer and Questioning Women's Discussion Group
Thursdays 5:30-7:00
Come join us and expand your consciousness and your social network. This group offers a safe place to dialogue with other women about your experiences that may include living on the margins and in the closet. Topics may include relationship beginnings and endings, coming out to self and others, starting families and parenting, social networking, community events, creating and participating in healthy Lesbian/bisexual/queer culture.
