The CLAC is Our Home Away From Home


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.

Through these opportunities, CLAC envisions a student-centered, learning community where students can better integrate experiential, academic and service learning about Latino arts and culture in order to become strong leaders and responsible global citizens.

Whether you identify as Latinx, or just seeking to learn more about Latino, Hispanic, and Latin American arts and culture, there is a community here at Rutgers where you can find common ground and call home!

Below you will find information on the entities that form part of our Latinos at Rutgers Community.
