The Carolina Latinx Collaborative (CLC) is committed to developing a greater awareness of Latinx 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 Latinx community. We provide a welcoming space for Latinx students through resources and services that foster and enrich their academic, social and cultural experience.
