Professor Villazor Testifies before California Assembly Higher Education Committee

Professor Rose Cuison Villazor testified before the California Assembly Higher Education Committee on April 18 in support of Assembly Bill 856, which seeks to diversity faculty and athletic coaches at California universities.

“A diverse faculty helps close achievement gaps, improves campus climate, and creates new curriculum and research,” said Villazor. “Having a faculty reflect the student population benefits students’ growth and has a positive impact on their learning experience.”

Professor Rose Cuison Villazor joined the UC Davis faculty in 2012 from the Maurice A. Deane Law School at Hofstra University.  She has also taught at Columbia Law School and the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law.  Professor Villazor teaches and writes in the areas of property law, immigration law, race, and citizenship.
