Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence (MCAE)

Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence (MCAE) is a community-based space focused on the academic experiences of first-generation students, students of Color, and American Indian students.

Pláticas: Latinx Connection Space

Pláticas: Latinx Connection Space is a virtual weekly group for Latina/e/o/x undergraduate and graduate students to come together and discuss specific needs, themes, challenges, joys, and identities in our community. Some of the themes we may discuss include: colorism, language, belongingness, indigeneity, mestizaje, gender roles, religion and spirituality, immigration, and ongoing events that impact our people and communities. 

We acknowledge that within the Latinx community there are many different identities, experiences, and preferences in how we describe ourselves. We invite this variety in lived experiences and trust that each of our identities and stories will add to our group and discussions. Sometimes we can wonder if we belong and if these spaces are for us. We want to honor how vulnerable it can be to consider joining a community space and hope to affirm your belonging and enough-ness. Come as you are and we hope you will join us and explore these reactions, wonderings, and questions together. 

In collaboration with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Program

Tuesdays 1:00 - 2:15  (virtual)

Facilitators: Nina Hernandez Beithon (she/her; SCS), Gisel Suarez Bonilla (she/her; SCS), Marisela Rodriguez-Gutierrez (she/her/Ella; MLK), and Sonyna Castillo (she/her/ella; MLK)
