This program is designed for teams of Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) practitioners who are working collectively on campus-wide efforts to improve Latinx student experiences and academic outcomes. The program brings awareness to the hidden ways that White Institutional Presence in HSIs continues to uphold inequities for Latinx students.
While participating in the program, teams of practitioners will explore ways to disrupt the status quo at their institutions to better serve Latinx students and improve their academic outcomes.
As a result of the program, teams will be better equipped to:
Diversify and equitize HSI work to feature voices that have been silenced, broaden participation in HSI efforts, and reduce ‘siloing’ of HSI initiatives.
Analyze meeting spaces, institutional policies and current practices for White Institutional Presence (WIP), and disrupt these to implement practices that better serve the Latinx community.
Facilitate conversations with campus community members about the social-historical and racialized context of their HSI and the importance of centering Latinx student experiences.
retreat Learning Goals
During the MTS retreat participants will:
Experience models for ‘holding space’ to facilitate discussions about race, power and privilege in HSIs.
Become aware of the team’s current intercultural competence and how to progress collectively.
Understand the importance of including the missing narratives and histories of Latinx people in HSI work.
Analyze institutional data with a critical, Latinx-centered lens.
