Welcome to Journey Through Our Heritage

Welcome to 

Journey Through Our Heritage

JTOH is one of the nation’s most innovative and unique multi-cultural educational programs

sponsored by Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) Department of

Chicano/Chicana Studies and Department of African/African American Studies.

The Journey partners MSU Denver students with local high school students

and engages them in a yearlong program that enhances current public school

curriculum in the areas of African/African American, Native American,

Chicana/o, Mexicana/o, Mexican-American and Latina/o studies.

The grand finale of the yearlong endeavor is an

academic “knowledge bowl” between participating high school teams.

The Journey also participates in numerous community events and works with the

Mauricio Saravia School of the Arts year round.
