Promoting Latinx learners' achievement is a priority coupled with a focus on equity, racism and justice for Latinx learners and families. We recognize the crucial need to increase the number of Latinx school and community leaders who understand the complexities of multilingualism, culture, and identity. Using a critical race theory lens and decolonized methodologies as an approach toward social justice and collaborative, empathic community-oriented learning, this program equips students with antiracist and culturally sustaining tools to examine and rectify systemic issues impacting marginalized students and families in their programs.
