Latinx Center

The UNC Latinx Center, which opened in new quarters in Abernethy Hall in late 2019, coordinates a number of educational and outreach programs for the Carolina community, including a Latinx Mentoring Program, Latinx Heritage Month, Exitos graduation ceremony, and a Latinx Alumni Reunion. The center was the culmination of an initiative launched by the Carolina Latino/a Collaborative in 2013, although the efforts began in 2007 with a small group of students who began the conversation to provide a space for this growing segment of the student body. The Latinx Center sponsors engagement and outreach programs and provides a space to support Latinx students.
