Critical Ethnic Studies Stands in Solidarity with Black Lives Matter, 2020, written by faculty of Critical Ethnic Studies with Rickey Vincent as the originating author and primary writer. This document touches on the history of constructs of race in the U.S., examines how these constructs of opression, particularly anti-Blackness, exist in 2020 as "we exist in an environment of “anti-Blackness” that inhibits our growth toward a truly inclusive and affirming community of human beings of equally infinite value" and call for recognition that "until Blacks are free from this oppression, and Black Lives Matter, no other lives will be free."
Letter of Solidarity Regarding Current Events, December 11, 2014, written by the Students of Color Coalition, and signed by students, faculty, staff and alumni from across the college. The letter seeks to: expand the official college response to racialized violence and the subsequent protests of 2014; to promote a deeper understanding of "racism in our society" by viewing "these events through a lense of power and oppression", to take a stand in solidarity with all affected and "those working to undo all forms of systemic and structural violence", and to "push the college further...to help create progress that embodies the needs of those most marginalized here" by outlining specific goals relating to Campus Climate, Curriculum and Enrollment that would "lay a foundation for and bring to light the need for greater support systems for students across all marginalized identities at CCA".
The front page article discusses CCAC's campus exhibitions and exhibition program, in early 2002. It quotes Sugene Yang, Coordinator of Undergraduate Exhibitions, for a general overview, and then focuses in specifically on the Martinez Hall mural wall ending with a discussion of the work that was in that exhibition space at the time: a piece by undegraduate Jim Ricks.

Art in Education: A Curriculum Planning Guide is the first publication of the California College of the Arts (CCA) Teaching Institute. It is produced by CCA’s Center for Art and Public Life.
The guide provides sample curricula and case studies grown from partnerships with Bay Area schools, artists, and educators. The curricula are aligned with California visual-arts standards and respond to the wake-up call provided by the 2007 research report An Unfinished Canvas by SRI International, which revealed numerous arts-learning inequities and shortfalls in state schools. Our guide addresses the pressing need for professional development resources. We are pleased to make it widely available to educators and artists who are working to advance engaging, socially and culturally relevant arts-learning experiences for all students.
