RAZA Center

The Retention Advancement and Student Achievement (RASA) Center seeks to empower Latinx students, and other students of color. Our purpose is to reverse the trend of historical underrepresentation that exists for Latinx students by providing support services where cultural identity is valued and embedded within its programming. We aim to provide a community space where culturaarte, and academics interconnect.
