Support Latinx Studies on Cornell's Giving Day

Our Story

"I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study."

On Cornell's Giving Day, March 16, 2023 we hope you will take a moment to reflect on the difference the Latina/o Studies Program and Latine Student Success Office has made in your life and consider the difference you can make in the lives of future LSP and LSSO students.

Latina/o Studies is committed to providing excellence in teaching and scholarship across disciplines at Cornell University. We pride ourselves on creating a friendly and supportive environment and providing space and resources for students interested in the study of Latina/os in the United States.

Here are some ways your gift to Cornell's Latina/o Studies will make a difference for our students:

  • New computers for its computer lab
  • Support undergraduate and graduate research grants
  • Sponsor guest speakers
  • Provide graduation stoles for our minors and a meaningful commencement celebration
  • Support LSSO's Latine Thrive series 

Here are some Latinx student reflections while at Cornell:

"The Latina/o Studies minor taught me not only about my own history, but the unique history of diverse groups of Latinx people across the United States."

"What I remember best from my Cornell experience are the Latinx community events, LLC bbq, Latinx Unity Dinners, Fridays with Faculty luncheon series. I found a family here within the Latinx community."

"The Latina/o Studies minor has meant learning about myself and my community through classes. I have had my best classes of my Cornell undergraduate studies from the LSP minor."

"The Latina/o Studies graduate minor allowed me to meet people who not only enriched the scope of my research but who became colleagues. I found amazing mentors and role models, whose interdisciplinary and engaged work inspired me. The minor gave me the opportunity to collaborate in community-based and socially-oriented projects with a diverse and vibrant body of faculty and students. The minor has encouraged and helped me to become a better teacher and scholar."
