Already busy with full-time jobs and family obligations, seven co-workers with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) enrolled together in California State University, Dominguez Hills’ (CSUDH) Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) program in fall 2017, adding a full schedule of college courses to their hectic lives. Yet, they finished early, and graduated this spring with their bachelor’s degrees in IDS. On May 18, they celebrated together at CSUDH’s 2019 Commencement Ceremony. Rosie Desales, Gisela Bedolla, Heather Mitchell, Cynthia Uballe, Gina Plascencia, Grace Estrada, and Celina Morales were conferred IDS degrees with an emphasis in comparative cultures. Grace Estrada graduated with an IDS degree in American studies.
