CouRaGeouS Cuentos: A Journal of


 CouRaGeouS Cuentos is comprised of cuentos (narratives) written and edited by students enrolled in the ES 107: Chican@/Latin@ Lives class (see the second issue). This project, under the leadership of CRGS faculty member Maria Corral-Ribordy and CRGS major Carlos Molina, with the support of Dean Oberlander and the library staff, the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, along with the department of Critical Race, Gender and Sexuality Studies, lies at the intersection of best practices for student learning and student retention. Not only are students writing for publication, and thus seeing themselves as active producers of knowledge, but they are filling a void in the academy, as their stories and the stories of their communities have largely been missing.
