CHAC: Cabrillo Hispanic Affairs Council


Bienvenidos / Welcome

Dear current and future CHAC members and supporters:

Hola and hello. Currently, we we meet on an as-needed basis. If you would like to contact CHAC please email Rachel Mayo, or Enrique Buelna,

Rebecca Garcia has set up the CHAC-Rebecca J. Garcia Endowed Scholarship that will help students acheive their educational goals. Every spring, CHAC will read scholarship applications and make awards to students. Scholarships have been awarded annually since spring 13.

During the spring ’07 semester in order to meet the changing demographics Cabrillo College faced and the designation as an HSI, an Hispanic Serving Institution, CHAC met regularly to discuss the future direction of CHAC; at that time we set up this website and defined our past, present, and future directions.

Latino/a students comprise a quarter of the Cabrillo College student population, and demographic projections estimate this percentage to continue rising throughout the foreseeable future. As a standing Cabrillo College committee, CHAC accepts and desires to expand its role as an active participant on the Cabrillo campus. Throughout our numerous meetings as a collaborative group the spring ’07 semester, we drafted the various sections of a governing document: Nuestra misión/Mission Statement, Estructura governalmental/ Structure and Governance, Metas/ Goals, and Historia/ History.  These sections were then emailed to all group members for comments and suggestions. The current versions of these sections are included as part of this website, which we view as a living document open to change as needs require.  Hopefully you will read these documents and support CHAC as we address issues affecting Latino/as here at Cabrillo College.

Looking toward a bright and prosperous future,

Adela Najarro

One CHAC member
