About Latino Cultural Center (LCC)

¡Todos Son Bienvenidos! "All are welcome!" is the guiding philosophy of the Latino Cultural Center. The LCC was established in 2003 as a place to gather, learn, share, and support Latino cultures. The LCC seeks to enhance diversity through education and programming but also acts as a home away from home among Latinos/as at Purdue. The LCC serves as an educational and cultural foundation for all students, faculty, and staff members.

Educational, social, professional, and cultural events are hosted and sponsored by the center throughout the year. Some examples are service learning and engagement projects, language appreciation and education, cultural entertainment, and poetry and professionalism workshops. These events are designed to foster open relationships across campus and in the community in celebration and education of Latino culture.

In addition to programming, the LCC also provides an array of resources for Latino/a students and visitors to the center. Some of these resources include an ITaP computer lab, Latin American book library, study room, lounge area with bilingual cable options, and a conference room for meetings and planning student activities. The LCC facilities exist to create an environment for successful education as well as support for a culture that is both familiar and essential to the Purdue academic community.
