Engaged Curriculum Grants

Latina/o Studies Program

With their rich histories and contemporary cultures, Latina/o communities are a vibrant, diverse and integral part of U.S. society. Latina/o studies encompasses political and labor participation, art, literature, music and performance, and issues of immigration, education, language and health. The development of the knowledge, skills and disposition for critical self-reflection, social praxis and democratic participation is at the very heart of Cornell’s interdisciplinary Latina/o Studies Program (LSP). Through collaborations with multiple community partners, the LSP has developed deep ties locally, regionally, nationally and even internationally with the goal of fostering engagement with U.S. Latina/o communities and issues through educational and artistic activities. The LSP is now consolidating its curriculum with explicit pathways to engaged learning and research, and enhancing and creating new partnerships that benefit students, community partners and communities far and wide.
