In this book discussion, Becoming Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Gina Ann Garcia explores how institutions are serving Latinx students, both through traditional and innovative approaches. Drawing on empirical data collected over two years at three HSIs, Garcia adopts a counternarrative approach to highlight the ways that HSIs are reframing what it means to serve Latinx college students. She questions the extent to which they have been successful in doing this while exploring how those institutions grapple with the tensions that emerge from confronting traditional standards and measures of success for postsecondary institutions. The book will be loaned to all 10 participants.

According to the National Center on Universal Design for Learning, students can make connections within and between concepts if multiple means of representation are used. Students perceive information differently, and most students differ in the ways they grasp and understand information or content delivered to them. NAU has software programs available that may help students who more easily comprehend information through visual or auditory means. This session will provide a brief demonstration and information on how the programs may be accessed.
