"Presente": Developing Latino-Centered Learning Communities

A project that would provide the opportunity for faculty to study and to develop courses on Latino history and culture at Bronx Community College.

Presente: Latino-Centered Learning Communities is a two-year professional development program designed to increase understanding of Latino history and culture for 18 faculty from Bronx Community College (CUNY) with a focus on two broad themes: citizenship and the law, and racial and gendered identities. The objectives of the program are: 1) to introduce faculty from across disciplines and First Year Seminars to new scholarship; 2) to help faculty identify common topics and approaches that can be incorporated into their courses; 3) to assist faculty in developing integrated Learning Community clusters of courses that include First Year Seminars; and 4) to strengthen the humanities curriculum by incorporating broadly applicable Latino themes and content into a broad range of courses. BCC will partner with the American Social History Project building on their work in the NEH-funded Bridging Historias Through Latino History and Culture, a three year professional development program.
