Latinos Unidos: Hispanic Center

Hola! We are so thrilled that you have found the Latinos Unidos: Hispanic Center at Indiana University Kokomo. Finding community and support during your time as a college student is so important to your success! The Center is here for you as you (or your child) transitions into and navigates through college life. The Center provides you with a safe space – regardless of your immigration status – to meet new friends, find resources for academic support, celebrate Latino culture, or just find someone to listen if you need to talk.

The Latinos Unidos: Hispanic Center will provide all kinds of fun events including movies, guest speakers, and co-sponsored fiestas and celebrations. It’s all about introducing Latino culture to our campus and ensuring it is respected and celebrated! Every year, you can experience and even share a variety of cultures through Culture Fest. The Latinx Student Association and the student Spanish Club also host celebrations that involve comraderie, games, and delicious food. Students can also be inducted into Sigma Delta Pi, the collegiate national Spanish honor society, for academic excellence. 

For the time being, the Center is located in the IU Kokomo Main Building, Room KO 178B.
