The theme for the 2006 CES undergraduate conference was "World Class in Your Face: Resistance, Refusal, Renegotiation." This inaugural conference was meant to raise awareness about the injustices that oppress classes on our campus and within our society based on sexual orientation, gender, nationality, skin color, faith tradition, class, ethnicity, ability, and politics. We also hoped to challenge WSU's mantra of "World Class. Face to Face." by considering what this actually means.
Through this awareness we want to empower those who have been denied a voice and provide a safe space for those who have simply stopped talking because no one in power was actively listening. We hope to break down divisive racial, cultural, social, and economic barriers and build in their place strong coalitions grounded in solidarity, resistance, refusal, and renegotiation, which will establish networks and alternative structures for students' agency and their antiracist work.
