If you haven’t yet heard the news that the administration of Mills College has sold this treasured cultural institution to its students, staff, faculty, and alumni, it’s time to get informed.

This Zoom discussion will feature the perspectives of affected community members in Mills, Oakland, and across the country, where women’s colleges and small liberal arts colleges are under attack from corporate predators, just like public schools.

The presentation will reveal findings from Save Mills College, All4Mills and others, including:

* Why Mills didn’t have to close
* The “Shock and Awe” campaign
* How students and faculty suffered and were silenced
* Possible futures for Mills
* Community Consequences

With appearances from students, parents, faculty, survivors of other affected college acquisitions, as well as OUSD and Oakland leaders who will comment on the “takeover trend” in education , this event will create space for more discussion around this devastating event than the College has ever allowed its community.

This event runs from May 3 through May 18, the anniversary of the 1990 student strike. Notable alumni from the historic strike class will also be making remarks.

Lucky guests will receive raffle prizes.

Watch Party from May 3 to 18

Prepare for this event by watching ‘The Unmaking of a College’, a new feature film about a similar crisis at Hampshire College.
