The Carolina Latina/o Collaborative (CLC) is committed to developing a greater awareness of Latina/o issues, cultures and identities by building collaborative relationships across campus and the community. Through these relationships, the CLC has created a network that connects various groups on campus involved in academic and cultural projects and programs. The CLC provides a supportive environment for students, faculty, staff and alumni to discuss and understand important issues that affect the Latina/o community. We provide a welcoming space for Latina/o students through resources and services that foster and enrich their academic, social and cultural experience.
The CLC offers its offices, gallery and meeting space for interdisciplinary innovations in scholarship, education, culture, and community engagement. Along with other programming, the CLC organizes two major annual celebrations on campus: the annual campus-wide Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration and the Latina/o Alumni Reunion.
