What the WSIP People of Color writing group has done for me personally is create a Cultural Learning Community that helps me feel belonging and capable. The group and the facilitator do this in an environment that is welcoming. This would be considered a culturally responsive practice, which is one of the objectives the University of Arizona is trying to meet under its new Hispanic Serving Institute status.
