Hispanic Families in Transition

Abstract

With minorities fast becoming the majority communities of the future, freshmen in the Hispanic Families in Transition ELG will have a chance to take a close, personal look at these minority communities, especially those comprising recent Hispanic immigrants, who struggle with poverty, literacy and the challenge of learning English as a second language, as they attempt to survive and succeed in American culture and society. This ELG group also will have the opportunity to travel together to heighten their understanding of immigration issues in Waco and outside of Texas.
