Puerto Rican students present demandsIn 2016 three LCS faculty (Carlos Decena, Kathleen López, Yolanda Martínez-San Miguel) led an Aresty Research Assistant Program to work in Rutgers University Libraries Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) to uncover the history of the department and Latinx and Caribbean people and organizations at Rutgers University. The student research continues through 2023, with the goal of generating a digital display that traces the struggles that led to the establishment of the program in Puerto Rican Studies at Livingston College in 1970, the Department of Puerto Rican Studies in 1973, and subsequent fifty years of continuity and change.
