Andy Merrifield teaches Political Science, Nick Baham teaches Ethnic Studies; both are also CFA officeholders. Nolan Higdon teaches History at multiple campuses; he describes the life of a "road scholar." The California State University system has 23 campuses, 26,000 faculty, and over 450,000 students. This program was recorded on April 8, shortly after the tentative agreement was reached, and days before the one-week faculty strike would have begun. Mickey Huff will return in two weeks.
