With approximately 115,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, LULAC is the largest and oldest Hispanic Organization in the United States. LULAC advances the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, health and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs operating at more than 700 LULAC councils nationwide. The organization involves and serves all Hispanic nationality groups.

Historically, LULAC has focused heavily on education, civil rights, and employment for Hispanics. LULAC councils provide more than a million dollars in scholarships to Hispanic students each year, conduct citizenship and voter registration drives, develop low income housing units, conduct youth leadership training programs, and seek to empower the Hispanic community at the local, state and national level.

In addition, the LULAC National Educational Service Centers, LULAC’s educational arm, provides counseling services to more than 18,000 Hispanic students per year at sixteen regional centers. SER Jobs for Progress, LULAC’s employment arm, provides job skills and literacy training to the Hispanic community through more than forty-eight employment training centers located throughout the United States. The LULAC Corporate Alliance, an advisory board of Fortune 500 companies, fosters stronger partnerships between Corporate America and the Hispanic community.

The Mission of the League of United Latin American Citizens is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, health and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States.

Education : NKU hosting Latino Students Leadership Workshop

Resized Image Resized Image Resized Image

Thanks to NKU's Latino Student Affairs under the direction of Leo Calderon, Latino students at NKU had the opportunity to learn more about how to become a Leader, and how to provide leadership in the community.

Leo Calderon was supported in this new initiative by Lisa Arraya, Dr. Al Pinelo, and Maria Clay, as well as Maria Molina from P&G.

It was impressive to see so many Latino students participating in this program, especially since they had to be there on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM. It is clear that NKU and its Latino Student Affairs Office do something right if they are able to motivate students to dedicate part of their Saturday to such a workshop. Congratulations!!!!
