Are California’s Hispanic Serving Institutions living up to their name?

Enrique Murillo Jr., a professor of education at Cal State San Bernardino, was quoted in an article about Hispanic-Serving Institutions and whether HSIs were living up to their designation.

“There is a strong case for increased investment in Hispanic Serving Institutions, so that we can meet the needs of the students where they are, and we can make good on the value of higher education for our individuals, families and communities,” Murillo said.

CSUSB professor defines extremism for article critical of left describing GOP as ‘extremists’

Brian Levin, who directs the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino, told the Daily Caller that extremism can be defined as “a position that is … antithetical to our constitution and the processes of our democracies, particularly with regard to bigotry and discrimination,” but admitted that the word is often thrown around too lightly.

“Sometimes we label people extremist because we’re too lazy to debate them, but other times people are labeled extremists because they are,” Levin told the Caller, adding that political problems arise, “when we have people running for various types of critical office who are election deniers.”

Levin told the Caller that people who spread extremist ideologies online but don’t necessarily call for violence still contribute to a negative environment.

“Those individuals are at least part of the ecosystem of extremism even if they’re not the bullseye center of it,” Levin said.
