All interested students, faculty and staff are invited to participate in a town hall discussion centered on the development of a Latinx Research Community (LRC) on Friday, Feb. 24, from 9 to 11 a.m. The town hall is co-hosted by the Race, Ethnic, and Indigenous Studies (REIS) program, Office of Research and Innovation and the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion.
As an aspiring Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) with a growing population of both Latinx students and scholars, Marquette is working to create greater infrastructure and support for Latinx-centered research. This idea – which emerged from faculty, staff and students engaged in this work – revolves around building a hub that amplifies and advances this research and creates space for connection and collaboration across disciplines. Our vision is a thriving scholarly community that empowers Latinx voices.
The purpose of the town hall is to connect aspiring scholars and those who are already engaged in Latinx-centered research and work collectively to flesh out goals, activities and structures that support this vision.
This event is geared toward Marquette Latinx faculty, staff and students, as well as scholars and aspiring scholars whose research interests center and support the Latinx community.
