About El Centro (Center)

The Latin@/x Center strives to promote gender equity, inclusiveness, and diversity by:

  • Instilling a "Community  & Familismo" approach
  • Referring to campus and community resources
  • Hosting educational and cultural (intersectional) programs, workshops, events
  • Supporting student needs and development
  • Supporting growth of the community through outreach panels, advocacy work

The Latin@/x Center Mission

The Latin@/x Center serves as a welcoming, inclusive, and culturally empowering space for all  students. We strive to educate the campus about: Latin@/x issues, multi-dimensional identities, and ethnic diversity represented within the community (i.e. Central & South America, Caribbean to Mexico). We focus on Latin@/x student validation and engagement by providing culturally enriching and transformational programs as well as services that foster and promote holistic student success. 


We aim to provide a multi-engaging, cultural validating, and educational advocacy space for students and the community at large. We inspire to promote transformational collegial experiences for Latin@/x students that foster student success.
