Rancho Santiago Faculty Decry Deal With Saudi Arabia

March 6, 2015

The Academic Senate of the Rancho Santiago Community College District has passed a resolution urging the district to end a $35 million consulting contract with the Saudi Arabian government, The Orange County Register reported. The resolution cites Saudi discrimination against women, Jews and others, and says that the college shouldn't be engaged in helping the Saudi government build education in a deeply discriminatory society. District leaders said they would be helping Saudi students and that the money they will be paid is similar to the funds going to other community colleges helping with such work.
