Tent University

From April 18-22, hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and Santa Cruz community members will gather at the base of UC Santa Cruz to form a giant tent city and alternative university, symbolizing the displacement of higher education in our state. The initial reason for our gathering is the unjust budget priorities that manifest at our campus, including massive student fee increases and unlivable wages for campus workers. UCSC faculty will lead their classes there, rather than in their classrooms; representatives of various community organizations and movements will hold teach-ins and workshops; and students will teach their own classes on a wide variety of subjects.

Tent U will be both a powerful form of resistance to the direction of the UC system and an opportunity to create the world we wish to see. It will also be an extremely fun, festive space, including art, music, and cultural expression of all kinds. Please join hundreds of your classmates and fellow community members for this historic community extravaganza!
