Statement of Purpose

The Latino Committee on University Affairs (LCUA) has been established to promote the development of educational, professional and career opportunities for all Latinos at UIC and to work within the university on campus-wide issues of general concern. The LCUA serves to advise the various offices of the UIC administration on all matters affecting Latinos. 

 

Background

In 1978, a group of Latino faculty and staff formed the Association of Latino Workers and began meeting to discuss issues of importance to Latinos at the then University of Illinois at Chicago Circle (UICC). In 1982, Vice Chancellor Richard Johnson appointed several members of this organization and other concerned faculty and staff to the Committee on Hispanic Education. 

More recently a group of Latino faculty and staff (including members of the aforementioned organization and committee) formed the Latino Committee on University Affairs (LCUA). In addition to working with different community groups and university offices, representatives from the LCUA meet on an ongoing basis with UIC administrators to discuss relevant issues and to develop strategies to enhance the opportunities of all Latinos on campus.
