CTN’s Director of Research and Evaluation, Erin Doran and CTN’s Director of Publications and Special Projects, Raphael Castillo published articles in the journal New Directions for Community Colleges: Emerging Issues for Latinx Students. Doran also edited the issue.

Doran’s article titled “Community Colleges’ Use of the Term ‘Latinx’” provides a primer on the evolution of terminology used to classify the Latinx/a/o population in the United States, the origins of the term “Latinx,” and an analysis of how community colleges currently use the term.

Castillo’s article is titled “Teaching Latinx Students with Carino : Using Validation Theory and Culturally Inclusive Pedagogy in Catch the Next’s Ascender Program.” This article describes the Catch the Next Ascender model, developed under the aegis of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board as a corrective to increase persistence and completion rates among the Texas Latinx college population.
