A two-year project to establish a new interdisciplinary minor in Latino and Latin American studies.

A four-member core committee of faculty from the School of Liberal Arts at Mercy College, a federally-designated Hispanic Serving Institution located in Dobbs Ferry, NY, is proposing the Latino and Latin American Awareness Project, a collaborative initiative that will work toward the establishment of a new undergraduate interdisciplinary minor in Latino and Latin American Studies. This two-year project will serve to strengthen and enrich humanities teaching and scholarship by supporting a community of faculty members who will work together to explore and examine the contributions of Latino culture and Latin America to the global community and who will develop a curriculum that will foster greater knowledge and expand students' views. The project will be informed by an ongoing lecture series presented by external experts devoted to issues that concern the Latino and Latin American communities. A total of six presentations will be offered over the course of the project.
