LARES LEADERS

The mission of LARES Leaders is to promote leadership development, encourage awareness of Latinx policy, and educate students on the importance of becoming a change agent in the Latinx community. The program is designed to provide leadership training and opportunities to current and prospective executive board members of Latinx student organizations at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  This academic yearlong program provides intensive leadership seminars with a focus on the Latinx issues that affect current UIC students and the Latinx community at large.  The program offers students an opportunity to enhance their leadership potential, participate in civic engagement, develop professional skills, and network with fellow Latinx leaders.
