Student Resource Guide
The Latinx Student Resource Guide offers a variety of LBCC Student Services, tips to achieve academic success, information on transfer, off-campus resources, and much more. There are several resources specifically focused on serving our Latinx student community.
Library Resource Guide
The Latinx Library Resource Guide provides valuable resources to those interested in learning (and thinking critically) about the experiences of various Latinx groups. It is meant to empower our Latinx community with an affirmation of our own cultura, identity, and valuable contributions to literature, academia, and the arts. The resource guide is a living repository of material. It includes lists of books, e-books, article databases, streaming videos, and accessible online resources.
Cultural Curriculum Audit
Long Beach City College (LBCC) has implemented a cultural curriculum audit to increase Latino students’ success by engaging its faculty in four key areas:
- Redesigning course content through a Latino lens.
- Redesigning classroom experiences ensuring that Latino students have the space to engage in the classroom comparably to their peers
- Redesigning assignments confirming expectations are stated in transparent ways
- Redesigning approaches to assessment by giving student feedback in supportive ways. Core success rates for Latino students in these courses increased at double the rate of Latino students in courses with non-trained faculty.
For more than 35 years, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) has empowered immigrants to push policies that promote freedom of movement, full human rights, and vigorous civic action that strengthens this democracy. CHIRLA is a place for organizations and people who support human rights to work together for policies that advance justice and full inclusion for all immigrants. Services include student support, deportation defense, family immigration, DACA, and citizenship.
Centro CHA has been Long Beach’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement and advancement of the Latino/Hispanic community. While their services are ever-changing to properly reflect the needs of our community, their core mission to improve social and economic development remains the same. Services include immigration legal services, youth development, workforce development, business support, and COVID relief.
