Chicano Studies at Metro State College of Denver: Suggestions for Proactive Strategies
This paper overviews the development and present status of the Chicano Studies Department at Metro State College of Denver (MSCD). At its inception during the 1960s, Chicano Studies were viewed as a means of destroying the racist and imperialist mentality toward Chicanos and promoting Chicano power and freedom. Chicano activists' efforts to end educational discrimination and an increasing Chicano student population prompted MSCD to establish a Chicano Studies Department in 1971.
