The Latin@ Center Mission

 The Latin@ Center provides culturally sensitive programs that fosters and promotes academic and personal success of Latino/a students. We strive to educate the campus about Latino/a issues and the ethnic diversity represented within the community (i.e. Central & South America, Caribbean to Mexico). The center serves as welcoming space where students can showcase Latin@ culture, academic excellence, research, collaboration, community service, dialogue, philanthropy, and inspire social change to the wider campus community.
