Latinx Partnerships for Success

LPS brings together a cohort of new students to build community bonds, receive one-on-one mentoring, and grow as leaders in the community.

A cohort is a group of people who have banded together to form a community of support and companionship. The LPS First-Year Cohort will be a group of peers who will also be experiencing similar transitions during their time at Dartmouth and can help serve as a source of strength and connection for each other. During the Fall term, LPS participants will attend weekly discussions relevant to campus life and Latinx identity. During the Winter term participants will be paired with an older student for 1-on-1 mentoring through regular meetings. Finally, during the Spring term, students will attend activities and sessions designed to support their academic, professional and leadership development.

Latinx Heritage Month

Latinx Heritage Month (LHM) is a month-long celebration of Latinx identity which seeks to recognize and celebrate the contributions of Latinx people in the U.S. and on Dartmouth’s campus. LHM achieves this through a month-long series of events dedicated to education, awareness and commemoration of Latinx heritage, history and culture.

LatinX Graduation ¡Si Se Pudo!

During the ¡Si Se Pudo! Latinx Graduation Ceremony, the Latinx community comes together to celebrate the contributions of graduating seniors. Seniors offer words of advice to fellow students and stoles are awarded to wear during graduation. The event takes place the Saturday of Commencement weekend.

Latinx Heritage Month (LHM) Kickoff BBQ

The LHM Kickoff BBq is both a community welcome and the first event of Latinx Heritage Month. New and returning students have the opportunity to connect with staff and faculty who have prepared a delicious assortment of authentic Latinx food as well as learn about student organizations and opportunities to get involved with the LHM Celebration.
