Representation of the Latinx culture is needed in our classroom
We need more representation of our Latinx culture in our classrooms and curriculum. We need more professors who reflect the diversity of our student body and who can bring unique perspectives and cultural knowledge. We need to have more of our culture represented in our curriculum in terms of readings, discussions, and activities. Although many of us have found this happening in Ethnic Studies, we need this all areas.
Professors need to include their students’ backgrounds in the issues and topics they teach. We also need for our professors to use language that connects to us and that we can understand. Some of us expressed having a connection to certain professors who worked to create meaningful relationships with us.
