    Administrative History

    The Third World Studies Program was established and organized in 1969 in Third College, which is now named Thurgood Marshall College. The program was constructed to represent a curriculum recognizing marginalized peoples' histories and to bridge the gap between campus and community by emphasizing community service leadership. Students completed core courses, initially including Black American History and Culture Sequence, Urban and Rural Development, as well as Chicano Studies or Black American History elective tracks. The San Diego Division of the Academic Senate approved the Third College Academic Plan, including the Third World Studies program in 1969. Faculty and Third World Studies Coordinator Carlos Blanco Aguinaga were instrumental in the initial planning sequences of the course outlines and core material selection. Blanco Aguinaga also helped support the development of the Chicano Studies major beginning in 1973.
