"¡Sí, Más!": Building Bridges with the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS)

A three-year bridge program between Texas Lutheran University and an area high school, anchored in the study of Mexican-American culture.

The core focus of the ¡Sí, Más!: Building Bridges with the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) project is to serve the surrounding community; strengthen both Texas Lutheran University (TLU) and Seguin High School (SHS) commitments as Hispanic Serving Institutions; address the changing demographics of TLU, SHS, and the surrounding community; and position more SHS Hispanic students to enroll in and graduate from TLU. This grant, in accordance with the National Endowment for the Humanities Common Good Initiative to foster engagement with Humanities scholarship in areas undergoing demographic change, will allow TLU CMAS and its Mexican American Studies (MAST) program to develop a Mexican American Studies Summer Bridge Program for 20 SHS Hispanic students (2 cohorts of 10 students).
