When discussing possible solutions for better organizing the Latino community to address these perceived issues, students proposed conducting a campus-wide survey to better gauge all student's experiences with discrimination and integration on campus.
“The school needs to know how prevalent this feeling of not really being integrated here is,” Veronica Gloria ’15 said.
Students also decided to create a task force to further explore options to strengthen the Latino community, which plans to meet in the coming week.
“We need to make this happen quickly,” said Dianisbeth M. Acquie ’16, who works for the Harvard Undergraduate Minority Recruitment Program. “I don’t just say this because I’m tired. I say this because at the end of this month, so many Latinos will receive acceptance letters. I feel like a liar sometimes if I tell these kids that this situation is a great experience for everyone.”
