Casa Latina Cultural Center

My son is a senior in high school this year. Visiting other university campuses over the past several months has given me a new view of universities --- a view from "the parent side." Those of us in higher education work every day from the inside to make the experiences of our students as fulfilling as possible. However, we can all benefit from an outside view to bring things into focus.

Many cultural centers were established in the late 1960s and early 1970s in higher ed institutions. The main purpose was to serve as a haven for underrepresented students facing pressing social and political issues. Fast forward to 2018 and that is still the case, especially in a political climate that uses harsh and generalized rhetoric to describe the Latinx immigrant community.
