Designing a Culturally Relevant Humanities Curriculum

A three-year project aimed at developing humanities courses that reflect Latino/a history and culture.

Like many HSIs, we must make the transition from Hispanic “enrolling” to Hispanic “serving.” To address this problem, we are creating a new streamlined humanities curriculum through a guided pathways model that will be culturally relevant and reflective of, and relevant to, our institution's rapidly increasing Hispanic student population while also preparing them to engage effectively in a global society. Further, the new humanities curriculum will be informed by practices of diversity and representation to ensure the content will be reflective of the background of understanding of this student body. Both practices are consistent with evidenced-based research in higher education and have demonstrated benefits for underrepresented, first-generation, and low-income students.
