The CME supported the proposed project, “Engaging ‘the Self in the Other’:
Invoking Kapwa and the Art of Global Relief, Recovery, and Renewal.” We are excited about your work to increase multicultural perspectives and believe that your efforts to explore with students the work of “artists and designers who specifically offer points of reflection in global disaster relief and recovery and who direct creative solutions towards community rebuilding and renewal” will offer rich comparative opportunities for our students and add important research to this field.

The CME supported the proposed project, “Chicana/o-Latina/o Literature in Praxis: Integrating Multicultural Perspectives Through Service Learning.” We are excited about your work to increase multicultural perspectives and believe that your efforts to encourage students “to question the ways that colonized Chican@/Latin@s can often internalize racism and ostracize those that do not fit the racial and cultural ideals of the European colonizers and their legacies in Latin America and the U.S.” will offer rich experiential opportunities for our students.
