The Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center’s mission is to improve the status of Latinx students and to promote awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the richness and diversity of Latinx individuals and Latin American cultures. PRLACC works independently and collaboratively with other University departments and community organizations to sponsor educational and cultural programs, provide services and leadership opportunities, foster connections, and educate the greater University community about Latinx issues. Our services and programs seek to enhance and support student, faculty, and staff recruitment and retention, as well as enrich the multicultural climate of our community.
