Latinx Student Services


Mission

The mission of Latinx Student Services (LSS) is to provide services, programs and resources that empower Latinx students to persist and graduate, develop and strengthen their self-advocacy and leadership skills, and contribute to the advancement of their communities. Most importantly, LSS seeks to be a safe inclusive place where students feel a sense of belonging and community and find pride in their self-identified identities, affinities, and culture.

vision

We believe when students have a greater understanding of self, they become empowered to reclaim* ownership of their education. Multicultural Life provides opportunities to deepen awareness and knowledge of identity, resilience, and advocacy.

History

Originally established in 1994 to support a majority of international and second generation Hispano/Latino students, the office of Hispano/Latino Student Services was rebranded in 2017 under Latinx Student Services in recognition of the changing demographics and needs of current Latinx students at Augsburg University.

Currently there are over 300 Augsburg Day students who self-identified as Latinx. These students represent a diversity of identities, cultural and national backgrounds, individual and community experiences, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, class, and immigration statuses.

SERVICES 

  • Provide a number of scholarships for all Latinx scholars, including DACA and undocumented scholars, such as the HOLA scholarship
  • Support students in their transition to college, such as connecting students to our financial aid counselors and other important campus resources
  • Provide opportunities to network with Latinx Minnesotan leaders, students, faculty, and community organizations
  • The Augsburg Latin American Students (ALAS) is a commissioned organization whose purpose is to  promote, educate and engage the broader Augsburg and surrounding communities in learning about the Latinx culture and encourages awareness and respect for students of Latinx ancestry. LSS advises ALAS board members and supports their student-led events, you can follow ALAS on instagram @alas.augsburg
