Latinx Coalition

Latinx Coalition promotes and advances the agenda of Latinx students at the University of Pennsylvania through collaboration with the University's policy making bodies.


In 1996, a group of conscientious Latinx students realized that they should take decisive action. Latinxs at the University of Pennsylvania were and are grossly underrepresented at all levels: students, faculty, and administrators. To develop a unified voice and a comprehensive strategy to deal with under-representation, we formed a coalition of five Latino student organizations. We, the Latinx Coalition, now consist of 24 groups. These organizations have missions that range from cultural, professional, honor, arts, and social.
