In this talk, Dr. Aguilar-Hernández will discuss 1990s Student of Color activism in higher education in California and beyond. Specifically, he charts the ways that students mobilized to improve the campus racial climate for Chicana/o/x and Latina/o/x students by demanding the creation of cultural centers and Chicana/o/x Latina/o/x Studies. Dr. Aguilar-Hernández will argue that student activism helped lead the increase of C/L students in higher education, thereby leading universities to acquire the Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) designation. However, the HSI designation isn't enough. Dr. Aguilar-Hernández argues that student activism has the potential to transform California universities to better meet the needs and demands of their students and communities.
