Responding to Reality: The Browning of Education: Latinx Myths and Realities in Urban Education

Light refreshments will be available at 4 p.m.

Co-sponsored by the School of Education Dean's Office and Center for Urban Education (CUE), this Responding to Reality will examine Latinx issues and experiences across the education pipeline as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM). HHM is annually celebrated Sept. 15-Oct.15 to acknowledge the history, culture, and contributions of Americans whose ancestry can be traced to Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Spain. In the United States, there are approximately 58.5 million people who have ancestries connected to these countries, yet they reside in the United States. 

Join moderator, Dr. Gina Garcia as she leads discussions with our four distinguished panelists Dr. Susana Muñoz, Dr. Rosa Clemente, Dr. Cati de los Ríos, and Dr. Mirelsie Velázquez. 

Responding to Reality (R2R) is a CUE series in which we discuss an important issue that is currently in the news or newsworthy, its impact on urban schools and communities, and possible solutions for addressing the issue.

Thursday, October 11 at 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
