Latinx Cultural Center

Mission Statement


The Latinx Cultural Center (LCC) at Utah State University serves as a conduit for service, engagement, advocacy, and visibility for the Latinx community on campus and in the Cache Valley and surrounding areas. The LCC is committed to empowering all who recognize a vested interest in the Latinx community by focusing on the pillars of academic, educational, personal, and professional growth. The LCC also serves as a communal space on campus for programs and groups that work to mentor and showcase the academic and individual potential of USU students who identify as Latinx or are interested in Latinx culture. Such programs include LASER at USU, Latinos in Action (LIA) chapter, and much more. In addition, the LCC is devoted to educating the campus and the public on issues that affect the Latinx community and is committed to the cause of diversity and representation in higher education.

Student Spotlight

Starting in the fall of 2019, the Latinx Cultural Center is hoping to select one student each month to highlight on our website. Our hope is to recognize our students' achievements and raise awareness of the Latinx community around campus.

Programs & Workshops

Lunch with Latinx Leaders

The Latinx Cultural Center has been hosting a series of bring-your-own-lunch events that are designed to let the USU community get to know their Latinx faculty, administrators, and staff in a substantive way.

 


Workshop Wednesdays 

As part of the Latinx Cultural Center's (LCC) commitment to empowering all who recognize a vested interest in the Latinx community, the center will host monthly workshops throughout each semester in order to promote academic, educational, personal, and professional growth. 

This series of monthly workshops will begin in Fall 2019. Topics will include networking, mental health awareness, resume building, grad school applications, study skills, finance management, and more.

  


¿Hablas Español? Come and Practice With Us!

Every Other Tuesday, from 3:00 - 4:00 pm

One of the challenges about learning or maintaining a language is finding opportunities to practice. Starting September 3, the center will host bi-weekly practice sessions, open to all who are interested in brushing up on their Spanish skills in a low-stakes, casual setting.
