The purpose of the Latino Leadership Initiative is to help develop a cadre of next generation leaders from and for the Latino(a) community. The LLI annually serves up to 50 of the nation’s most promising undergraduates with demonstrated interest in serving the Latino(a)community. The partner schools sending cohorts are Miami Dade College, UMass Boston, Texas A&M International University, University of California at Merced, University of Texas-Pan American, Loyola Marymount, City University of New York and the University of Houston. Objectives of the LLI are: to enhance the leadership capacity of students committed to serving the Latino community; to help participants form a strong and durable bond among themselves and with other leaders; to inspire participants to view their own possibilities for leadership and professional achievement as limitless.
