Tom Ball, VP of the Native's Program at U of O, will be interviewed on "Tillicum Wawa" Thursday 2-21

 

Tom Ball , Vice President  of the Native American porgram at the U of O in Eugene, will be our guest on KBOO radio station, for  this week's  "Tillicum Wawa" show on Thursday 2-21-13.

Tom Ball,  Emillio Henandez of the Latino programs and Carla Gary of the African American programs have been replaced by a "single position' for all of these minority programs, by Yvette Alex-Assensah . She was  appointed by the President of the U of O.

This is an outrage to these people who have dedicated  years at developing the programs for and of minority students at the University of Oregon.. The lack of these minority leaders will , at the very least, discourage other minorities from enrolling in the U of O.
