La Casa is Yale’s Latinx Cultural Center. La Casa will serve as the center for some of the events during the conference. La Casa has been a community, resource center, and home for Yale’s Latinx students.
“Building on a strong campus community, the Latino Cultural Center promotes a sense of unity among Latinx people at Yale. We are committed to providing a comfortable space where our diverse cultural heritage, history and traditions can be celebrated and explored by all Yale University and New Haven community members. In partnership with our resident organizations, La Casa provides opportunities that foster a sense of belonging and pride while supporting the intellectual, personal, leadership and social development of our students.”
Since 2005, the Latino Ivy League Conference (LILC) has served to advance Latino communities within the eight Ivy League Institutions. The conference features keynote Latinx speakers, collaborative workshops, and open forums where students are encouraged to exchange ideas for strengthening their respective Latinx communities. This year’s theme is #YoTambien and the conference will focus on some of the most marginalized identities within our community.
