Practitioner Conocimientos for Serving Latinx Students Series (PCS)
We are excited to announce our newest workshop series relevant to all HSI, emerging HSIs and MSI practitioners in higher education who serve a large percentage of Latinx students.
The first module will open on April 30, 2023.
Others will become available throughout 2023, released approximately one per month.
“Gaps Don't Just Happen” The Racialized History of Latinxs in Higher Education
(available starting April 30, 2023).
This first module will uncover the history of systemic racism endured by Latinx communities in the U.S., and how these educational histories caused the current inequitable outcomes in higher education for Latinx people. Special attention will be paid to Latinx educational segregation in the early 20th century, legal battles, parent walkouts, and the role of Latinx higher education administrators and community advocacy organizations in the development of the HSI designation and funding. The module provides an important historical context for anyone who works with significant numbers of Latinx students.
