The University of Denver Latino Center for Community Engagement and Scholarship (DULCCES) was founded in 2005 by former provost and chancellor Robert Coombe. DULCCES is as a consortium of interdisciplinary faculty dedicated to creating and advancing knowledge that gives voice to the history, politics, culture, and legacies of Latino communities. The faculty of DULCCES are dedicated to critical inquiry that incorporates the rich histories of the Latino community. As a community of scholars we value the connection between the mind and the heart of the community which is the foundation from which we have emerged as scholars.
recent event-AS/US ISSUE 6 Release party
AS/US ISSUE 6
DU and Denver community members joined us on May 20, 2016 to celebrate the release of women's literary journal, As/Us: Issue 6 . This is a special issue dedicated to women of color and gender non-conforming people of color in higher education. It features poetry, non-fiction, flash fiction, digital imagery, personal narrative (and more) from women of color and gender non-conforming people of color at all levels of higher education. Deeply intimate, heartbreaking and hopeful, the authors let us into their daily lives navigating institutions of higher education. It is our hope that this issue may share creative expressions and inspirations that contribute to finding nuanced solutions to the most pressing issues of inequality in our institutions of higher learning.
