El tráfico humano es esclavitud
La definición es siempre la misma: Trabajo o actos sexuales forzados para que otros se beneficien.
27 millones de personas están esclavizados alrededor del mundo hoy día.

Y aquí en Ohio?

Alrededor de 2000 personas son traficadas en Ohio hoy día, atrapadas en burdeles, restaurantes, campamentos de migrantes y casas de personas.

Así que afróntelo!

La Coalición de Rescate y Restauración para el centro de Ohio, por su nombre en inglés, The Central Ohio Rescue and Restore Coalition lucha diariamente contra la esclavitud aquí mismo en Ohio. Usted puede ayudar. Para concientizar al público y rescatar las víctimas del tráfico humano, visítenos en e involúcrese.


Human trafficking is slavery.

The definition is the same as always: forced into sex or labor for someone else’s profit.

27 million people are enslaved around the world today.

And here in Ohio?

Almost 2000 people are trafficked in Ohio today, trapped in brothels, restaurants, migrant camps and people’s homes.

So fight it!

Latino/a Studies Minor available at OSU

Latino/a Studies Minor

The minor in Latino/a Studies explores the social, cultural and historical realities facing Latinos/as residing in the United States as well as how such realities interface with those of Central and Latin America and the Hispanophone Caribbean. The minor attends to all variety of cultural phenomena as well as social and historical event in the Americas that inform the shaping of a pan-Latino identity
and experience.

The minor in Latino/a Studies requires 25 credit hours and draws upon course work in several departments and colleges. Students must choose one of the 3 focus areas (Culture and Literature; History; and Social Issues) which are comprised of a minor core, a focus core course and 15
elective hours. Minor course work may overlap with the GEC where appropriate.
*Courses marked with an asterisk have variable topics.
Syllabi for these courses need approval from the minor coordinator to count on the minor.

Choose one focus area to complete the minor:

Culture, Literature and Arts Focus
Students choosing this area will focus their coursework on the
various forms of creative expressions that have emerged from the
U.S. Latina/o community: literature, film, art, dance, theater, music,
comic books, and more. This might also occasion the exploration of
Latina/o cultural phenomena as it interfaces with that arising out of
communities in the Americas generally. Students will explore just
how such Latina/o cultural making and engaging is a means of
creative expression as well as a potential vehicle for social

History Focus
This focus area will situate Latina/o history on the border between
U.S. and Latin American history. Students will learn about the
experiences of communities who had been rendered invisible by
canonical histories in the U.S. and Latin America. Moreover, they
will learn new methodologies for historical research and gain a
greater understanding of the relationship between history and

Social Issues Focus
The emphasis of this focus area will be the current issues affecting
the Latina/o population in the U.S. These social issues (that stretch
across the Americas) may include, though are not limited to,
immigration, educational policy, language, labor, voting trends, etc.
Classes will require students to analyze current media reports about
the contemporary state of affairs in the Latina/o community and
place these reports within a broader historical backdrop.

International Student Volunteers (ISV)

DATE: 10.1.2008

Amazing Travel Opportunity

International Student Volunteers (ISV) is looking for students from the Ohio State University to travel overseas this summer on its exciting volunteer and adventure programs.

Selected participants will have the opportunity to travel with a group of students from all over the world (18 years and over) on volunteer projects and adventure tours to either Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Eastern Europe and South Africa. The standard program lasts for one month but some students elect to travel from two weeks up to three months.

Traveling alongside ISV trained project and tour leaders, students will spend the first two weeks volunteering in real hands on projects, in either social community development (improving the quality of impoverished villages, building houses for refugees, teaching children English etc) or conservation (working with endangered sea turtles, elephants and dolphins, ecosystem rehabilitation, environmental education etc).

The second two weeks will see participants launch into an adrenaline filled cultural and adventure tour of their chosen country, involving such activities as white water rafting, glacier climbing, waterfall rappelling, scuba diving and jungle kayaking.

ISV’s Campus Representative, Rachel Blakeman says the organization is looking for fun, outgoing students to partake in the highly sought after programs.

Jewel Romero from Ohio State University recently participated in the Dominican Republic program: “This trip went above and beyond my highest expectations. The lessons and new outlook on life I’ve gained was worth every penny. With this trip, I was able to visit an entire country and open my eyes as well as my heart. I fell so blessed to have been able to come.”

ISV is a not for profit organization that takes over 4000 students on its life changing programs every year. Its mission statement is “to combine education; conservation and recreation into the most incredible experience of a lifetime, while giving back to the local communities in the countries in which we are traveling.” Because ISV is a not for profit organization, students can offset the cost of the program through tax deductible sponsorship donations from the community.

Some students may also apply to receive academic credit for their participation in the ISV program as there is a strong educational element throughout the entire trip.

More information on the program can also be found at
