Hispanic Council Featured in ‘Hispanic Outlook on Education’
Magazine commemorates 25th anniversary of Tri-C organization, which serves Hispanic students throughout the College
Of the more than 23,000 students currently enrolled at Cuyahoga Community College, about 1,700 are Hispanic.
It’s a portion of the student population that can encounter obstacles to education not often faced by students in other demographics, including language barriers, cultural differences and lack of financial support.
To help overcome those barriers, Tri-C formed the Hispanic Council in 1993. The council develops and facilitates initiatives that aim to benefit not just the Hispanic student population at Tri-C, but the Northeast Ohio Hispanic community at large.
The Hispanic Council also assists non-Hispanic students encountering similar challenges. Students from Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East have also benefited from the council’s services.
Hispanic Outlook on Education magazine recently featured Tri-C’s Hispanic Council, highlighting its work over the past 25 years and the resources it provides for Tri-C students.
