Si se puede: Latino/a Culture, Family, Race, Ethnicity, and the College Experience

Ebelia Hernandez (Education Psychology)

One in four kids in elementary school are Latina/o, which means that it is worthwhile to understand more about our culture, language, history, identity development, and other factors that play a role in the college experience in unique ways. In this course, students will consider how race and ethnicity may affect how we think about education, decision making, resilience in dealing with challenges, and the differences between Latinas/os and other groups on campus. Class discussions, film viewings, and guest speakers will encourage students to think critically of the ways that society and the educational system interplay with each other; affecting access and persistence in higher education.
