LatinX Affairs | LSU Office of Multicultural Affairs

Latinx Student Affairs

All students who identify in some way with Hispanic/Latino/a/x are welcome and encouraged to meet other Latinx individuals on campus. Our goal is to encourage, guide, and enable the academic, professional, and social achievements for all students on campus. Through engaging in cultural events we will develop strong relationships that will empower us to greater success.

As the student demographics continue to shift, the Office of Multicultural Affairs will continue to meet the students’ needs in order to help students persist and graduate.
Each academic year, our office will focus and explore our Hispanic/Latin community to better serve our students and the Baton Rouge community. With this initiative in mind, our goal is to create and plan events accessible to every student in the LSU community.

Asuntos estudiantiles latinx

Latinx les da la bienvenido a todos los estudiantes que de alguna manera se identifiquen con y/o encuentren en el mundo latinoamericano y/o hispánico sus raíces culturales ¡A todos les animamos a encontrarse y reunirse en el campus con otros estudiantes latinx! Nuestro objetivo es motivar, guiar y apoyar los logros académicos, profesionales y sociales del grupo. A través de la participación en los eventos culturales, esperamos que todos y cada uno de los integrantes de latinx puedan establecer relaciones de amistad y compañerismo así como desarrollar vínculos profesionales que fortalezcan sus metas y los dirijan hacia el éxito.

La Oficina de Asuntos Multiculturales sigue atentamente los cambios y variaciones dentro de las necesidades de la población estudiantil latinx con el fin de saber cómo apoyar mejor sus estudios y encaminarlos de manera directa hacia la graduación. Cada año académico, nuestra oficina centra sus esfuerzos en saber más de nuestra comunidad latinx para así servir mejor a nuestros estudiantes y la comunidad de Baton Rouge. Con dicha iniciativa, nuestro objetivo es crear y planear eventos accesibles a todos estudiantes de LSU.
