Our story: Empowering communities through student lenses (Student Panel)

We invite you to hear from Latina, Latino and Latinx students from across SLCC campuses and academic programs who will share in their unique experiences at SLCC. Join us in learning from our students about various their realities and perspectives. The panelists will focus on three main areas (1) The relationship between Latinx students and the education system (the good and the bad), (2) The importance of pursuing a higher education for Latinx individual, families, and communities, and (3) The ways in which students can participate in their schools and communities.
