Rogers State University Adjunct Professor Felipe Oyarzo recently wrote an article which appeared in TulsaPeople Magazine.
Oyarzo’s article, entitled “Our house: Casa de la Cultura is a new hub for community engagement,” appeared in the Jan. 27, 2023 edition of the Tulsa-based publication.
Casa de la Cultura, which translated means “House of Culture,” is one of Tulsa’s newest Latino organizations, joining the numerous Hispanic churches, supermarkets and media outlets. The organization, located at 1515 N. Harvard Ave., is an independent nonprofit that offers art and musical pursuits to all ages, as well as opportunities to learn more about Hispanic culture.
“The TulsaPeople Magazine contacted me to write this article and since I’m bilingual, they thought I would be a better fit to conduct this interview with the center’s leaders,” Oyarzo said. “They also asked me to translate it into Spanish for the Spanish-speaking leaders, as they’re trying to promote diversity in their publications.
“It was an honor to have been invited to participate,” he said.
Oyarzo’s article was published in the print and online editions of TulsaPeople, both of which are currently available to read.
Oyarzo currently teaches research methods in Psychology in the graduate program (Community Counseling) and developmental psychology in the undergraduate program at Rogers State University.
