|Title:||Do Latino Greek organizations foster more political activity than other Latino-based student organizations?|
La Casa Cultural Latina
|Abstract:||This project aims to answer the following questions: What political movements have Latino-based student organizations participated in since the 1990s? How many Latino Greek and non-Greek organizations have hosted political/educational/philanthropic events within the last five years? What contributions have these organizations made to the Latino community on and off campus? Based on eight interviews at La Casa Cultural Latina and participant observation at various events, this study shows that Latino Greek organizations are more politically active, while the Latino non-Greek community is more committed to achieve long term change.|
