Chicano Studies and Rio Hondo College.
Negrete, Louis R.
A study was conducted to review and make recommendations concerning current and potential curricular offerings in Chicano Studies at Rio Hondo College. The need for Chicano Studies is discussed in terms of an assessment of current curricula, the emphasis and direction for Chicano Studies, and assessments of library offerings for Chicano Studies. Eight recommendations were made: (1) that a Chicano Studies Department should be established; (2) that it should be established in two phases--a Chicano Studies Center should be established immediately to coordinate a new Chicano Studies major, and a separate department should be established as soon as possible thereafter; (3) that a Chicano Studies major should consist of an Introduction to Chicano Studies, Contemporary Politics and the Chicano, Introduction to Chicano Culture, Bilingualism and Biculturalism in the Southwest, Chicano Economic Issues, Field Work in Chicano Studies, and Spanish Language in the Southwest; (4) that the center and department should be funded from the regular college budget; (5) that an action program should be developed to insure ample opportunity for the Chicano population for all vacant college positions; (6) that the college should initiate a special study of what happens to Chicano students after enrollment; (7) that faculty inservice training programs be established; and (8) that Chicano scholars should be consulted prior to the acquisition of future library works on Chicanos.
