Description

Title:What Does La Casa Cultural Latina Mean to Its Active Student Population?
Author(s):Files, Ryan
Subject(s):Latino/a
La Casa Cultural Latina
Social Spaces
Ethnicity
Race
Abstract:This project aims to answer the following questions: What are the traditional problems Latino/a students face when entering the university? How do these problems differ from majority/other minority cultures? How (if at all) do the programs at La Casa differ from those at the AACP and AACC? Who are the active participants and what role do their attitudes play within La Casa? The student conducted eight interviews, did participant observation, and mapped La Casa spaces. Results indicate that students perceive the role of La Casa differently, but these functions appeared to be complementary. The author notes some clique formation among La Casa participants, but does not find La Casa to be extremely exclusionary or segregated along racial and ethnic lines.
