Alianza Latina is a dynamic group, comprised of students dedicated to strengthening the Latino/a and Hispanic community and representing the complexity of those same heritages at the University of Vermont. We invite you to learn more about our organization and welcome you to contribute with your own perspectives, experiences and voice.
Alianza Latina was created with the purpose of fostering solidarity among the Latino/a and Hispanic students at the University of Vermont by creating a space for dialogue, identity development, and establishing a sense of community around shared heritage.
Alianza Latina seeks to educate the UVM community about the strength, ideas, unity and plurality present in the Latino/a and Hispanic community. This is to be accomplished through diverse programming, events and activities that demonstrate the professional, political, social, and cultural presence of Latino/as and Hispanics at UVM, and the greater Burlington area.
Finally, Alianza Latina serves as a safe and informal space, providing a strong foundation for UVM’s Latino/a and Hispanic students to grow as individuals and members of the UVM community.
*You do not need to be Latino/a or Hispanic or speak Spanish to join Alianza Latina! All you need is an interest in the Latino/a and Hispanic culture. That, and an appreciation for our food. :-)
