Presentations

Our presentations are designed to facilitate a discussion about issues impacting Latinos, dispel myths and stereotypes, and prepare students and staff to be better equipped to excel in a growing, multicultural society. The presentations are in an interactive format and are usually between 40 and 60 minutes in length. Presentations can be modified to fit the needs of the group. Please contact us 2 weeks in advance to schedule a presentation.

Panels/Tours

We enjoy having groups tour the Center. Tours are approximately 15 minutes in length, but can be longer depending on questions from visitors. Special tours requiring presentations or panels should be submitted 2 weeks in advance.
