The Latino@ Graduate Student Coalition (LGSC) provides a forum for its members to work together in support of one anothers’ academic excellence and recognition. As members of Latin@ communities and other traditionally underrepresented groups in higher education, the members of LGSC work to raise awareness of the political, social and academic issues facing their communities.
We also strive to create a stronger sense of community and friendship with the larger Latino community in Ithaca, and fellow graduate students of underrepresented communities at Cornell. This includes the Society for Asian American Graduate Affairs (SAAGA), the Black Graduate & Professional Student Association (BGPSA), the Indigenous Graduate Student Association (IGSA), the Cornell Latin America Student Society (CLASS), and the Latino Civic Association (LCA).
We meet once a month on the 4th floor of Rockefeller Hall in the Conference room.
