Association of Latina(o)/Hispanic American Students
The Association of Latino(a) Students is primarily composed of students from a Latino(a)/Hispanic background. It welcomes students from all ethnic backgrounds. The mission of ALS is threefold. First, ALS provides a community for students to engage the Latino(a)/Hispanic heritage. ALS also seeks to enhance the students’ Seminary education with workshops that address their needs specifically. Second, ALS seeks to foster a constructive dialogue on issues affecting the Latino(a)/Hispanic American Community. Third, in conjunction with bringing awareness, ALS encourages responsible action toward these concerns. This is done through various events which include, but are not limited to, panel discussions, workshops on academic needs, cultural awareness events, meetings, dialogue with other students, and social gatherings.
