American University Latino Alumni Alliance


Objective

The mission of the American University Latino Alumni Alliance (LAA) is to increase engagement, foster connections, and build a worldwide network of the 4,000 American University Latino and Hispanic-heritage alumni community and beyond. The LAA allows possibilities for alumni to further their participation through volunteer opportunities, student mentorship, and promotion of understanding and awareness of the AU Latino community.

The vision of the Latino Alumni Alliance (“LAA”) is to build a life-long and global network of American University Latino alumni that philanthropically commits to AU, and serves as a support system and influential voice for the University-wide Latino community.
