Our Campaign for Cantonese Language Classes & Certifications at the City College of San Francisco
After student-led protests against cuts to class offerings at CCSF, two Cantonese courses were offered in Fall 2021, but only one offered in Spring 2022. We are continuing efforts to include Cantonese classes in a certificate program that makes it eligible for funding and other administrative changes to prioritize Cantonese classes. We want future students to benefit from a strong and sustainable Cantonese language program at CCSF.
Inclusion of Cantonese classes in a 16-unit, funding-eligible certificate program
Cantonese classes that are UC-transferable
