She is not a token Latina

I am a professor & was profoundly affected when I heard a student talk about having been referred to as a “token Latina”. I realized that although I care a great deal about diversity on my campus, I had been guilty of thinking of students that way – as the “token” minority. I resolved then to really try to think of my students as just students, not token anything.
