ABOUT THE CLAC

The Center for Latino Arts and Culture (CLAC) was established in 1992 to research, document, interpret and promote Latin@, Hispanic, Caribbean, and Latin American arts and culture. CLAC seeks to build 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. We advocate for the wellbeing of our students and work to create effective access to University services and resources. Through dynamic collaboration with other academic and student affairs units, the Center works to enhance Latino student recruitment, retention and successful graduation at Rutgers University.

 

All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Programs subject to change. Persons with disabilities who anticipate needing accommodations or have questions about physical access for this event may contact clac.info@rutgers.edu or (848) 932-1263 in advance of each program.
