The Carlos Cantu Education and Opportunity Endowment will be hosting Latino Policy Issues in the 21st Century co-sponsored by the Vice President and Associate Provost for Diversity, a series of major public lectures focused on issues affecting Latino communities during the 2016-2017 academic year. The lecture series will be comprised on 8 Latino speakers highlighting the diverse academic research on the Latino community across Texas A&M University and broader academia. From within Texas A&M University, 6 professors will present current research on Latino Policy issues from religious freedom to bilingual education. In addition, the series will bring in Matt Barreto, UCLA Professor and Co-founder of Latino Decision, and Marta Tienda, Director of Latino Studies at Princeton University, to present on Latinos in Politics and Latino Education respectively. With the diversification of communities, within and outside of academia, we hope to bring awareness of Latino issues and their consequences to a wider audience. In addition, we spotlight Texas A&M University Latino professors undertaking this research along with their research agendas.
All events are free and open to the public, and a small reception will follow to meet the speakers.
