Opened in April 1992, the center`s primary mission is to research, promote, document, and interpret Latino culture. The center identifies scholars, artists, and experts who help develop interdisciplinary programs that define and examine Latino culture, history, literature, and the arts. These programs, as well as special projects, are designed to foster academic excellence and advance the appreciation, growth, and well-being of the Latino cultural community.
The center builds a broader understanding of Latinos and their culture through conferences, exhibitions, lectures, theater productions, symposia, workshops, artists` forums, concerts, academic seminars, publications, and collaborative projects with community organizations outside the university.
Located at 122 College Avenue, the center is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For special events, the center also is open on weeknights and weekends. Please call 732/932-1263 or 1494 for further information.
