Linguistic Servingness at HSIs


From the episode:

"The HSI Now, that is the Hispanic Serving Institution Network of Wisconsin, is such a powerful collaboration. It's been a way for me to reconnect with Marquette University. It's been a way for me to get to know more in depth the initiatives going on across Wisconsin, but primarily southeast Wisconsin, where we have the Latine population, where we have the students, where we have the community connections to really build…the HSIs are leading conversations on advancing, you know, advancing equity in higher education"

Episode description

For the final episode of season 3 I talk to Vanessa Varela, Assistant Professor in Education, and Jason Meyler, Associate Professor of Spanish at Mount Mary University, a small women’s college HSI in Wisconsin. In this episode we dive into HSI NOW efforts in Milwaukee, the evolution of servingness at Mount Mary University, and the importance of acknowledging language and multilingualism in servingness efforts. Our guests highlight Mount Mary’s multilingual strategic plan, which is embedded in their HSI philosophy, and the Culture, Classroom, and Multilingual Learners Workshop, which builds capacity among faculty, adjuncts, and tutors to deliver academic content in diverse linguistic classrooms. This is the first ¿Qué pasa, HSIs? episode to unpack linguistic servingness in HSI, but it won’t be the last as this topic is truly multidimensional as Vanessa and Jason highlight. Listen in and learn about linguistic mobility at HSIs.
