Rutgers University offers many academic and extracurricular opportunities to discover and critically explore the history, culture and the arts of Latinos in the United States and around the world.
The Latino presence at Rutgers goes back to the late 1800s, but has greatly expanded in numbers and scope since the late 1960s. Please check out the Latinos at Rutgers: A Timeline, available for download as a PDF document.
