Rhys, PhD. This approach informs the university of what inclusive measures are working successfully and what areas may still need to be addressed. -- Insight Into Diversity

In 2013, Josh Norek, who co-hosts The Latin Alternative out of Albany, New York, with journalist and author Ernesto Lechner, collaborated with Cal State Northridge's KCSN 88.5 to expand the hourlong show into the country's only 24-hour radio station exclusively dedicated to Latin alternative music.

Why are Green Groups So White? A Talk With George Sánchez-Tello

Sánchez-Tello began working with The Wilderness Society, a land conservation group not exactly known for its diversity, while he was in graduate school at Cal State Northridge working on a master’s degree in Chicano Studies.
