AS Presidents

The UCSB Associated Students present... "a forum featuring a reunion of Associated Students Presidents. This free public forum will be presented on Friday, April 7, 2006 at 1:30 pm in the UCSB MultiCultural Center.

"The UCSB Associated Students Presidents Forum will feature more than 25 former Associated Students Presidents reflecting on their experiences. Included in those expected to attend are Robert Scalapino (1939-40), founder of the Institute of East Asian Studies and Professor of Government Emeritus at UC Berkeley, Bill James (1969-70), the first student of color to serve as AS President who has gone on to work with the US State Department US Aid program and at the United Nations, and Claude Ruibal (1976-1978), CEO of the World Championship Sports Network.

"Also scheduled to attend are several former AS Presidents who served during the turbulent ‘60’s and 70’s when Isla Vista became a hotbed of activity which culminated in three separate riots and the historic burning of the Bank of America.

"Former Associated Students Presidents have been asked to share the highlights of their time in office and reflect on what impact the experience has had on their life. The Presidents will also be available to answer questions from the audience."
