Optimism, broad communications experiences drive new SOJC dean

Juan-Carlos Molleda

Juan-Carlos Molleda

July 15, 2016—“Juan-Carlos Molleda starts each day with a cup of freshly ground Colombian coffee and a good dose of NPR. Then he scans The New York Times, Washington Post, Oregonian, Economist and his Twitter feed to see what’s happening in global news.

“‘It’s a challenge to remain optimistic, but for me it’s a priority,’ he says.

“Optimism is a given for the new Edwin L. Artzt Dean of the School of Journalism and Communication, who also brings a fresh perspective and a firm commitment to ensuring a vibrant future for the SOJC.

“‘I have big shoes to fill but I am so excited,’ Molleda said. ‘I will be articulating the message of the school and building bridges not only in local and state communities, but nationally and internationally. I’m also looking forward to collaborating with my colleagues and helping them achieve greater heights.’

“Formerly chair of the Department of Public Relations at the University of Florida, Molleda created and directed UF’s online master’s program in global strategic communication, was an affiliated faculty member of UF’s Center for Latin American Studies, and served as a Fulbright senior specialist.”

Strengthening Networks of Support Among Latin@ Students at UO

Supported by the Latino Strategy Group (LSG), Center for Latino/a and Latin-American Studies, Department of Education Studies, and the Department of Romance Languages.

Strengthening Networks of Support Among Latin@ Students at UO
final executive report of the Latino Strategy Group

Executive summary (final) 

Latino Strategy Group research team: 

  • Angel Dorantes, Doctoral Student, Critical and Sociocultural Studies in Education
  • Claudia Holguín Mendoza, Assistant Professor of Spanish, Director of Spanish Heritage Language Program
  • Audrey Lucero, Assistant Professor of Language and Literacy Education
  • Luz M Romero Montaño, Ph.D., Romance Languages
  • Analisa Taylor, Associate Professor of Spanish

The Latino Strategy Group (LSG) is an emerging alliance of faculty, staff, students, and community members collaborating to improve educational access and equity among Latin@ students at UO and in the local area. The LSG seeks to make mentoring and advocacy work for and with Latin@ students visible to the wider university community, to coordinate with networks of support already in place, and to advocate for the expansion of resources in accordance with increasing Latin@ student enrollments. In 2015, with a grant from Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies, we researched how UO Latin@ students perceive and negotiate the academic and sociocultural expectations of a flagship state university. We sent a Qualtrics survey to 1,700 undergraduate students, who self identified as “Latin@”. One hundred and seventeen students responded. This research gathered useful information for administrators and faculty members as they continue to improve the recruitment, retention, and on-time graduation of Latin@ students.
