Support Latina/o Studies

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

We hope you 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.

Our faculty are recipients of prestigious fellowships, teaching and advising awards. We pride ourselves with a friendly and supportive environment and provide a space and resources to students interested in the study of Latina/os in the United States.

Our curriculum provides students the opportunity to explore and learn about cultural identity, language, communities and migration, as well as performance, art, poetry, music, education and digital technology.

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

Latina/o students at Cornell are saying:

“LSP has been a home and a resource in furthering my education at Cornell”

“Latina/o Studies classes have been, without a doubt, some of the most enjoyable and influential of my time at Cornell”

“The Latina/o Studies minor has allowed me to be able to reflect and deepen my understanding of what it means to be Latinx”
