Agency  |  Leadership  |  Empowerment

The purpose of the Latinx Leadership Institute at Penn State is to increase the number of Latinx leaders available for appointments. The one-year program emphasizes student empowerment, bilateral education, social justice and exposure to the University’s organizational structure. Participants are encouraged to apply the skills gained via constructive dialogue and from identity and leadership development toward activism on and off campus as well as in society at-large.
