"Professors, she said, should also be prepared to intervene when heated debates transform classes into racially charged environments:"
And do what?
"...he invited her to show a film of her choosing and lead a discussion about racial issues"
Well, did she?

While it might be easy on the face of it to consider Book Arts (related to my work, through which I have come to know and admire Prof. Walkup) and Dance (my son's college major) marginal. I suspect that these programs' graduates are employed in satisfying work and that the small size and accountability of programs such as these are major contributions to student satisfaction and, therefore, retention. I suspect that there are many other, proven ways for students of data science and economics to get their training in California. Mills's dance and book arts programs are unique and a drawing card. Someone has given the administration bad advice.

Nice work. Science and art the same.
I am parent of a child who graduated from Mills College, as well as chair of the MFA in Writing Program at California College of the Arts, where we have a small book arts program begun by the great Betsy Davids. Her retirement left us with a quarter-time instructor who teaches in other programs and many fewer students who take advantage of the one course we can offer every year. I completely support the great artist Kathy Walkup's remarkable years doing this work. Thank you for the article. Organize students, organize CW faculty to sustain this important program. Gloria Frym
Keep BOOK ARTS! I am retired, a former artist in the book printing Industry.
I believe it is extremely important to offer this program not eliminate it.
It is important to learn the manual skills involved to create a book to fully appreciate the power of books in the past as well as the continuing potential of books as tools for learning; equal to electronic media!
