The Needs of the Chicano on the College Campus.
Gomez, Anna Nieto; Vasquez, J. Anthony
The problems of the Chicano (Mexican American) student on the college campus can be alleviated in the following ways: (1) summer institutes for incoming freshmen providing bilingual classes, bilingual teachers, and remedial English; (2) an orientation program to make the student aware of the bureaucratic procedures of a university; (3) a counseling system whereby upper division Chicanos would advise and help entering students; (4) free health facilities provided for the Chicano student to ease his financial burden; (5) less expensive housing on campus, or rent supplement programs subsidized by the Federal Government; (6) more extensive financial aid programs or expansion of existing programs, such as National Defense Education Act loans and Educational Opportunity Grants; and (7) changes in the Selective Service System because of discriminatory practices against Mexican American students.
