An e-mail sent out this afternoon says the Chicano/Hispano Student Affairs Center will remain open.

Here’s the message:

The UA announced earlier this year that it wanted to merge all of the minority student centers to save money. That effort has sparked protest and pushback from faculty, students and community members.

No word on whether other student centers will also remain open or just the Chicano/Hispano center.
