||The Latino Cultural Center, La Casa, was established at Indiana University in November of 1973. Its purpose was, and continues to be, to achieve through educational and social programs, a greater historical, political and cultural awareness regarding Latina/os. As an advocacy office, we work closely with other units on campus to assist in the recruitment and retention of Latina/o students. La Casa is staffed by a full-time director, an administrative assistant, a graduate assistant and a number of undergraduate work-study students whose goal is also to create an environment where anyone in the Latino community can go and feel a sense of community and belonging.
