14th Annual Latinx Leadership Summit

The purpose of the Latinx Leadership Summit is to nurture the cultural pride and identity development in the Latinx community on the Auraria Campus.

With these efforts we intend to build a stronger sense of community, belonging, leadership capacity, and a sense of activism that permeates our campus and local communities.

This tri-institutional summit intentionally commemorates the work of Cesar Chavez and recognizes those in our Latinx community whose contribution and impact are reflective of his life, legacy and leadership.

The conference is free and open to all students, faculty and staff.
