Latino/a Studies: Curriculum for the College Community

Curricular development and faculty workshops to enhance a new certificate program in Latin American and Latino/a Studies at Wilbur Wright College.

Wright College of the City Colleges of Chicago is proposing a two-year initiative to enhance our offerings in Latino/a Studies and to bolster our newly-formed Latin American and Latino/a Studies Program. This supports our mission as a Hispanic Serving Institution as research indicates that graduation and retention rates are improved when students see their own experiences reflected in the classroom and their college communities. The project will entail three phases: 1) research and new course design; 2) faculty development to enrich previously existing humanities courses with Latino/a content; 3) partnerships with community organizations and transfer institutions. Our goal is to improve the quality of humanities teaching and learning at our institution.
