New add-drop deadline, effective fall 2018

New add-drop deadline, effective fall 2018 Dear students, Effective fall 2018, the deadline for all undergraduate students to add and drop classes will move to Wednesday of week four of the semester. The fall 2018 deadline to add and drop classes will be Wednesday, September 12 at 11:59PM PT . This deadline applies to all courses not on the Early Drop Deadline list . The deans made this decision to improve the student experience. The new deadline will increase students’ chances of enrolling in the classes they need: seats will open up early enough for eligible waitlisted students to enroll and succeed in their classes. Also, classes will stabilize earlier, which means that faculty and students can settle in to teaching and learning earlier, and there will be less disruption to group work. On Thursday and Friday of week four, departments will be adding students from waitlists to fill vacated seats, so make sure you drop yourself from the waitlists of any courses you no

Dance theater seeking women of color

Juan Manuel Adalpe, a PhD candidate in Performance Studies, is seeking women of color with GIS skills to collaborate on a very interesting socially engaged dance/art project in Fruitvale, Oakland.

Special Topics in Rhetoric : Science and Public Rhetoric 189A | CCN: 32905 Instructor:  Nasser Zakariya 4 Units T/TH  9:30-11:00am , 222 Wheeler Science in public takes different shapes. It is defended as universal knowledge essential to human persistence and human thriving. It is critiqued as a particular knowledge that looks to ground itself, failing to take stock of the historical and social conditions that impose on its claims and ambitions. It is, lastly, dismissed or vilified as false or even fake. How then does modern science relate to social and political values? Can scientific facts simply be independent of these values? Should they be independent? If scientific knowledge is often esoteric, yet crucial to social welfare and to political and environmental futures, how should publics relate to that knowledge? In what ways are the sciences themselves constitutive of modern publics and republics? Should publics decide not only on the value of
