Welcome

Welcome to the LSU's LatinX caucus.

The purpose of the organization shall be to serve the special needs of Hispanic and Latinx employees by providing the following: (1) formal support structures specifically for Hispanic and Latinx faculty, staff, and students, particularly regarding recruitment and retention; (2) a venue to foster community, celebrate each other and our community’s contributions, and to discuss issues that affect the Latinx community specifically; (3) mechanisms to promote our concerns to the larger LSU community; (4) a proactive entity capable of investigating complaints, addressing problems, and, when necessary, informing the University administration of these concerns by making recommendations as required to resolve these issues; (5) an official body of LSU Hispanic and Latinx employees that will act to ensure and maintain equitable treatment in promotions, job opportunities, and a work environment free of discrimination and ethnic or racial tensions.

Achievement of this purpose shall be provided as may be practicable through workshops, lectures, seminars, meetings, events, websites, employee assistance programs, and other contacts within and outside the university community.
