The Latinx community is a polycultural population whose traditions are deeply rooted in diverse origins. Family-centeredness or familismo is the value of collectiveness as a family unit. It provides opportunities for learning and a gateway to socialize traditional beliefs in younger generations. This presentation will discuss the methods in which students of Latinx populations maintain this cultural identity while transitioning into individualist institutions of higher education.
