Latinos Unidos: Hispanic Center

Eres bienvenido aquí!

Finding a community and support system is important to your success as a student. The Latinos Unidos: Hispanic Center is here for you, as you navigate the transition into college life. Here you will find a safe space – regardless of your immigration status – to meet new friends, find resources for academic and personal support, and celebrate Latino culture! 

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved through the center, the Latinx Student Association, or the student Spanish Club! Take part in trivia tournaments about Hispanic and Latino culture, lead a lesson in salsa dancing, or enjoy a Spanish-language film with your friends!

If you excel in the classroom, you can also join Sigma Delta Pi, the collegiate national Spanish honor society! There are so many ways to showcase the pride you have in your heritage and your culture!

We look forward to getting to know you and welcoming you to our campus!

Family focused

The support of a family can be a crucial part of a college student’s success. If you have a child nearing college, you know it can be an exciting and overwhelming time.

If you have questions, concerns, or just want to talk, the center is open to you too! Our director would be honored to meet with you, and point you in the direction of the resources you are looking for – or just listen and offer support.

No problem is too small or silly, so please don’t hesitate to reach out at any time!

Navigating financial aid

It takes a lot to make your collegiate dreams come true. That’s why there are resources available through IU Kokomo, the state of Indiana, and the federal government to help make your dreams a reality.

You can access those resources through our Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, and the center is here as well to help you navigate the financial aid process.
