Anti-Racist Resources



In 1983, a small group of students took the initiative to create a space for themselves on the Tufts University campus.  After a ten-year effort full of discussions, debate, adversity, and modifications with the Tufts Community Union (TCU) and university administration, came the inevitable success and establishment of a university recognized center with a full-time director in October of 1993. Over the years, the Latino Center has experienced several transformations with the purpose of serving the Latinx community and community at large.  Whether you are a prospective student, current student, or alumnus of Tufts University, our traditions, history, and perseverance serve as a reminder of the permanence of the Latino Center.


The Tufts Latino Center was founded in October 1993 as a space and resource for Tufts University students and community members to gather, learn, share experiences, show support and appreciation of Latinx identities. As one of the centers within the Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion, the Latino Center seeks to provide resources for inclusion, education, academic achievement, and cultural programming in collaboration with students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community at large.


The Latino Center is a welcoming community providing a dedicated environment to engage in research, celebration, collaboration, and dialogue to inspire advocacy, appreciation, and social change within the Latinx community. The center offers academic and personal advising, mentorship, and guidance for all students.
