Brenneman said a team of people is looking to fill the position of director as soon as possible. The program itself should be in place by the fall of 2007, providing cultural programming for the campus, addressing student support services and offering opportunities for current faculty to learn Spanish.
Other possibilities include collaborative faculty-student research, a “bridge” program to assist minority students in preparation for college, partnerships with other colleges and universities and the local public schools, recruitment of Latino and other minority faculty and assessment of the college’s academic curriculum.
Brenneman said there will be no new building projects in the immediate future, but some space may be renovated in order to accommodate the new program.
