Students participating in the LLI form tight-knit cohorts that support their success within and beyond the classroom.
The Latinx Leadership Initiative (LLI) prepares students to work with Latinx individuals, families, and communities in the U.S. and around the world from a strengths-based perspective. Through the LLI, students develop a nuanced understanding of Latinx populations, the challenges they face in accessing equitable education, social services, and healthcare, and the most effective interventions to overcome these challenges.
The LLI incorporates coursework, research, field placements, mentoring, training in self-advocacy, and career development. Five courses are offered exclusively in Spanish, and students are required to take at least one.
