Are you a Latinx leader?

The Latinx Leadership Development Institute, hosted by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, aims to enhance the educational, social, and cultural activities that develop students’ leadership abilities. ┬áHere are some things to think about if you are considering applying…

  • Do I identify as a Latinx student?
  • Do I wish to become involved on campus?
  • I want to be involved, but I don’t know where to start.
  • I consider myself a leader or someone who wished to be a leader.
  • I want a group of peers, mentors, faculty, and/or staff to lean on when I face things on campus.
  • I want that group of people to be my family away from home.
  • I want that group of people to help in my transition to college life.
  • I want to learn more about my Latinx community and culture.
  • I am willing to dedicate myself to this leadership cohort.
    • Mandatory bi-weekly workshops
    • Mandatory bi-weekly meetings with a current undergraduate or graduate student mentor.
    • Mandatory attendance at the Opening Retreat and End of Year Reception.
    • Participation in the development and completion of the mandatory cohort capstone project.
    • Mandatory meetings with the Program Coordinator twice a semester for academic advising.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider applying to be apart of the 2017-2018 first-year LLDI Cohort. We will provide you with resources and opportunities to explore who you are as a Latinx student here at The Ohio State University. We will also provide you with a close knit group here on campus that you can call home.

If you have questions feel free to contact Lauren Lopez at lopez.233@osu.edu.
