What We Do


The Chicanx/Latinx Student Success Center (CLSSC, also known as Centro) will understand and respond to Latinx students unique needs through campus community advocacy and student empowerment. 

Centro will be a culturally-sustaining, academically-affirming space where students, staff, and faculty can collaborate to find new and effective ways of increasing Latinx student persistence, retention, and graduation rates.



Informed and inspired by the many cultural strengths of Latinx communities,  Centro offers innovative programming and support services that are intentionally designed to enhance Latinx student success.  As a result, Centro provides spaces that affirm students’ intersecting identities, validate their academic capabilities, develop their leadership skills, and foster healthy relationships, while promoting civic and community engagement.
