Our Mission is designed to connect Latinx students with peers on campus and in the professional world. A group of students were selected for our year-long program to connect with prominent Latinx professionals in careers ranging from Education and Business, to non-profit work and the legal field. Along the way, student participants will discuss the Latinx identity and how that related to the career they chose.
We offer a variety of guest speakers with Latinx backgrounds who have made an impact in their community and come to empower our Unidos cohort. Our guest speakers are people that look like YOU and ME, share their personal accomplishments and challenges experienced throughout their career, and hope to become part of your network.
