The Latino Education Gap

Date: Saturday, April 6th, 2013
Time: 6:00PM to 8:00PM
Location: Satow Room, Lerner Hall, Columbia University

The CU Chapter of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, Columbia PorColombia, and the Chicano Caucus are seeking to raise awareness on Columbia University’s campus regarding the national education gap affecting Latino students.

As a major issue in larger conversations of inequality, we believe that it is crucial to shed more light on the subject to increase support for our community and create a think tank of ideas to solve the problem. We are hosting a panel discussion with professional experts on this topic, ranging from early childhood education to political movements.

This will be a great experience to listen to different perspectives and experiences on the U.S. education system and its disparities.

The list of guest speakers includes:

Jackie Vimos from the New York Immigration Coalition,

Carlos Blanco, CC’12 and current TFA teacher,

Dr. Carlos Vargas-Ramos, a professor at Columbia University and Hunter College

Natalie Cortez, TC’12 and counselor at the Double Discovery Center at Columbia
Moderator: Diana Puñales Morejon, PhD, MS, NYS Licensed Psychologist, BC ’84
