planning & selection, transfer tools/resources, Transfer Admissions Guarantees, Associate
Degrees for Transfer and university visits. In addition, COUN 129 will focus on a
deeper understanding and critical inquiry into educational history/theory of Public
Education in the U.S. and how it’s impacted the educational experience of underrepresented
students. COUN 129 will also examine the practice of leadership, historical traditions
of leadership, and current leadership theories through the lens of Latinx experiences.
It will explore the responsibilities and privileges of leadership, and help students
develop their own foundation for leadership within the Latinx community.

Corequisites: ENGL 110 The Puente Project incorporates an interdisciplinary approach between English
and COUN courses. To this end, curriculum, assignments, topics, discussions and themes
are integrated between both Fall ENGL 105 and COUN 128 as well as Spring ENGL 110
and COUN 129. As such, students must be registered in both classes concurrently to
meet Puente Project course expectations and to maintain the continuity of curriculum
between ENGL and COUN courses as required by the Puente Project.
