UT 10: Student Activism & Ethnic Studies

In May 1999 a group of students opposing the arrest of 10 student protesters ended a week of unrest when administrators agreed to meet with them to discuss creating a new Asian American Studies Program. Come meet and hear from the "UT 10": who were they, what they are doing now, and what you can do for your community.
