¡Bienvenidos a "El Centro" de Pacific!

La misión del personal de "El Centro" es reclutar y retener a los estudiantes chicanos/latinos en la Universidad del Pacífico, promoviendo, a la vez, nuestra cultura. La oficina al igual se encarga de representar a la Universidad durante nochesuniversitarias, ferias de empleo, visitas escolares y otros programas informativos. La oficina de "El Centro" es el puente y el centro de la comunidad local y las organizaciones comunitarias latinas. Nos involucramos activamente en un diálogo significativo con comunidades de hispanos regionales para desarrollar iniciativas concretas y programáticas para servir mejor a los estudiantes hispanos/latinos y sus comunidades. Buscamos la manera de que la Universidad, únicamente, puede asociarse para el mejorar nuestras comunidades. Nos esforzamos por promover la cooperación productiva entre la gente de las Américas a través de iniciativas creativas.
