Welcome to the Latino Resources Center (LRC) at Northern Illinois University
(NIU). Our goal is to serve as a central resource for Latinos on campus
and in the community to assist and encourage them to persist at NIU.
LRC offers students opportunities to participate in cultural, social
and academic programs that enchance their classroom experiences.
Furthermore, in an effort to create learning opportunities beyond the
classroom that inspire intellectual, personal and civic growth for
leadership, the LRC provides community outreach/service opportunities.
the LRC collaborates with on-campus units and community resources to
provide services and programs. New initiatives and ongoing programs and
workshops include: career development, Latino culture awareness,
leadership enhancement, successful academic and social transition to the
university, academic guidance, psychosocial support, student forums,
and Latino student art exhibits.
am pleased that you took the time to visit our website. I look forward
to your participation in the Latino Resource Center, whether as a
student, faculty member, alumnus, or friend. Please feel
free to contact me at the LRC if you would like to learn more about the
Center's services and programs.
