Community & Lack of Community

¿En dónde está mi gente? Where are our role models? There are few faculty that look like us and they can only be found in certain majors. We have multiple identities, we are diverse, yet we often label everyone as Mexican American. Few spaces for Latinx LGBTQ folks to be their authentic selves. We are forced to identify as Latinx or else we are nothing, erasing our indigeneity. Our visibility is still lacking when the fact is we have multiple identities. The institution creates many recruitment materials for us but there are few retention resources making us feel that these recruitment materials are all for show. Is the school really trying to support our success? Many of us are getting left behind. You know we are here.
