The Ethnic Studies program from CSU Stan included an educational retreat for one of the upper division courses. Students learned about land, identity, and spirituality practice in place-based exercises held at WildPlaces headquarters in the Giant Sequoia National Monument.

Ethnic Studies is an interdisciplinary program that provides a critical, relational, and intersectional approach to the study of African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicana/os-Latina/os, and American Indians within a regional, national, and global context. The Ethnic Studies curriculum provides students with critical inquiry that advances their analysis and understanding of the histories and contemporary situations of racial and ethnic groups in relation to class, gender, sexuality, nationality, and other forms of power.
