Our Mission Statement

President Lincoln

The Organization of Latin American Affairs, referred to as O.L.A.A., is a cultural organization of Boston College. Its purpose is to articulate and promote the needs and goals of the Latinos at Boston College and to foster and encourage an attitude of academics, religious beliefs, and social awareness.

It is to aid, support and assist in the recruitment of prospective Latino/a students, and to assist in their admission to Boston College. It intends to further the interest of the Latino/a community in greater Boston and the United States. It incorporates the use of bilingual and bi-cultural knowledge in providing exposure of the college experience to Latino communities, through community service, political action, social justice, and social awareness. It strives for the unification of Latinos, not only in the Boston College community, but also in other academic institutions and throughout the world.
