The UC Chicano/Latino Advisory Council is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Latinx Leadership Summit, this year at UC Riverside. The Leadership Summit is an annual meeting where faculty, staff and administrators from across the UC Latinx community come together and use their collective knowledge to identify systemwide challenges and opportunities.

Attendees will engage in:

  • Leadership discussions designed for Chicanx/Latinx faculty and staff
  • Updates on data as it relates to the Latinx community at UC
  • Special workshops related to career development and personal wellness
  • Participate in campus-specific teams to lay the foundation for institutional work to take place within the next year
