Student Organizations

We encourage students to engage in extracurricular activities and participate in the many student organizations within the Latina/o community. These organizations have a home on the fourth floor of Rockefeller Hall, complete with a computer lab and printing, a study and research area, meeting space and room for students to work on group projects.

African, Latino, Asian and Native American (ALANA) is an intercultural umbrella student organization that seeks to provide the Cornell community with a wide variety of programming that fosters awareness of and appreciation for a wide variety of perspectives and the ability to engage inter-culturally. In addition, ALANA seeks to allocate funds to those registered student organizations that wish to provide such programming. ALANA programs embrace social, cultural, educational and service initiatives that help to express the variety of perspectives and experiences at Cornell and that respond to the needs of students of who come from an extensive range of heritages and lifestyles. We are committed to creating and supporting events that cater to the intercultural community at Cornell University and the surrounding Ithaca area. Programs include: Black Students UnitedCornell Asian Pacific Islander Student UnionLa Asociacion Latina and Native American Students at Cornell.

La Asociación Latina (LAL) is the umbrella organization for the Latino organizations on campus. Since 1975, LAL has strived to serve as a catalyst for the Latino community.  With the goal of uniting the Latino community at Cornell, LAL has worked towards providing the community with the historical and political contexts necessary to advance nuestra gente.  LAL achieves its goals by coordinating political, educational, social and cultural events with its member organizations.
