The Latino Research Center at the University of Nevada, Reno serves as a nexus between the Latino community and the university. Its mission is to foster research, student achievement, faculty collaboration, advocacy, and outreach in a manner that best meets the educational needs and goals of the State of Nevada and best honors the intellectual and cultural capital of the Latino presence in our state.
A strong spirit of collaboration with other University and community organizations has allowed us to prepare and contribute to projects that affect directly the Latino community. Research being the most important element, will bring information and data that will help policy makers, and the community at large to understand the needs and the unique characteristics of the Latino community.
Throught these collaborations we expect to contribute to a more tolerant environment in all aspects of the daily lives of the people of Nevada as well as the whole country, opening new channels of communication and strengthening said channels with valuable data and information that will ultimately demonstrate the importance of the roles Latinos play in our society.
