Message from the Director

As the Director of the Latino Resource Center and on behalf of Chicago State University, I want to extend a warm Bienvenida!

Chicago State University (CSU) values diversity and has always opened its doors of higher education to people of various ethnicities and cultures. Our caring faculty and staff understand and respond to the unique needs of our multi-racial student population.

The Latino Resource Center (LRC) will assist you in achieving your educational goals by offering extensive support services and living-learning-serving experiences. In addition, our professional staff is ready to make your transition to Chicago State University's campus life and academic programming as smooth as possible.

Most importantly, the Latino Resource Center provides an intimate atmosphere in which Latino students can thrive. Their academic and personal growth is enhanced and their higher education experience becomes one to remember.

I invite you to familiarize yourself with the various academic programs, many resources, and social organizations at Chicago State University. Feel free to call us to schedule an individual tour of our campus or to speak to other Latino students.

Te Esperamos.
