Cal State San Bernardino’s LEAD Program focusing on education in the Latino Community
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month 2017, Hispanic Lifestyle is pleased to point the spotlight on Latino Education and Advocacy Days “LEAD” program at California State University, San Bernardino.
Starting in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson, Americans have celebrated the accomplishments and contributions of those who ancestry originates from Latin countries in the United States. This year during Hispanic Heritage Month Hispanic Lifestyle is recognizing businesses and organizations that have made a difference in our community. In our first posting we focus on education specifically Latino Education and Advocacy Days “LEAD” program at California State University, San Bernardino.
Beginning as the Journal of Latinos and Education, the primary motivation of LEAD was to build an education movement. Over the years this program has expanded to programs with a purpose of promoting broad-based awareness of the crisis in Latino Education and to enhance the intellectual, cultural and personal development of our community’s educators, administrators, leaders, parents and students.

Earlier this year in March 2017, LEAD hosted its Annual LEAD Summit. Under the leadership of Enrique G. Murillo, Jr., Ph.D., Executive Director and Professor for LEAD, the week long summit brought together students, educators and various community leaders to discuss educational issues impacting Latinos.
