Latinos In Action

Latinos In Action (LIA) is a national organization serving over eight thousand students nationwide ranging in age from elementary school through college and, through our Alumni Association, into the professional world. LIA welcomes all who have the desire to further their learning and become leaders in their communities. 

Our Mission

Empowering Latino youth to lead and strengthen their communities through college and career readiness. 

We accomplish this mission through the development of personal assets, academic excellence, leadership, and community service.

We believe true leadership is expressed through service. Members of LIA everywhere are part of a FamiLIA, working together for the benefit of all.

Academic Excellence

We believe our voices are amplified through education. We encourage and promote academic excellence and life-long learning for all.

Through the LIA Mentoring Program college students guide and mentor first-year students to make sure they have the best opportunity to succeed. 

Through the Mentoring Program, we witness first-hand the value of service and a shared responsibility for each others' success.

Professional Development

The end goal of Latinos In Action is to see each LIA student earn a degree and move into the professional world.

Recognizing the benefits of networking, Latinos In Action encourages and provides opportunities for students to interact with professionals in their chosen fields of studies. With a degree and the skills developed through their participation in Latinos In Action, our students are prepared to become leaders, not just in the Latino community, but in the overall community.

LIA Officer Elections

With the launching of our Latinos In Action USU chapter, we are hosting an election for LIA student officers. These student leaders are essential to the success of our chapter, and we cannot move forward without them. To give every candidate the fairest opportunity to have voters hear why they think they deserve to be voted for, we have created brief videos of every candidate, which you can find below. We encourage students to review these videos and vote for the candidate they feel is best qualified for each position. Feel free to review this document for more information regarding the roles of each officer.

Elections will be held on Wednesday April 17, 2019. A live Q&A, where students will have an opportunity to meet candidates and ask questions, will happen from 11:30-12:00 pm in the Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 154. To vote, please stop by the Latinx Cultural Center (Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 202) and complete your voting ballot between 8am and 5pm on that day. Voting will close precisely at 5pm
