Advisory Board

The Center for Latino Arts and Culture (CLAC) at Rutgers University welcomes the active involvement of leaders in our community as members of the CLAC Advisory Board.

The CLAC Advisory Board is established to provide support, advice, and counsel to the CLAC Director and staff. Board members are committed to increasing the Center’s visibility, assisting in areas of personal interest and serving as advocates for the Center for Latino Arts and Culture within our community.

We are thankful for those individuals who currently serve as members of our Advisory Board. Please let us know if you are interested in serving on the Advisory Board by emailing assistant director Saskia Leo Cipriani.
