With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, faculty at Mercy College embarked upon The Latino and Latin American Studies Project. The initiative laid the groundwork for an interdisciplinary minor by bringing artists, scholars, musicians, filmmakers, and art historians to campus and encouraging faculty to collaborate on new courses. As a designated Hispanic Serving Institution, Mercy College’s student population is nearly one-third Latino and many students of all backgrounds go on to serve Latino populations in their careers. For these students, the opportunity to learn more about Latino populations and Latin America was an opportunity to reflect on their own cultural heritage, learn more about that of others, and prepare for the workforce.
