Conexiones: Linking Berks County Latino Communities to a Larger World

A two-year professional and curricular development program for fifteen community college faculty on Latino history and culture.

Reading Area Community College (RACC) in partnership with the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning (ASHP/CML) Graduate Center of the City University of New York proposes Conexiones: Linking Berks County Latino Communities to a Larger World, a two-year professional and curricular development program for fifteen RACC faculty members. RACC is a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI)—31% of student population—and thus Conexiones will enhance existing courses in RACC’s general education and develop courses with Latino-based humanities content.Conexiones will build upon efforts begun by RACC faculty during ASHP/CML’s 2013-2015 NEH-funded Bridging Historias. RACC views Conexiones as the next logical follow-up to Bridging Historias as it further introduces Latino history and culture to additional faculty across more subject areas. By the end of fall 2018, RACC will have an Associates of Arts in Latino Studies and will have created a digital teaching resource.
