EMU Latino Alumni Chapter

The purpose of the Latino Alumni Chapter is to promote Latino cultural awareness, provide support, to ensure academic excellence among Latino students and serve as a bridge between EMU and the community at large. They also help students through scholarships such as the Carlos El Jefe Endowed Scholarship, the EMU Latino Alumni Chapter Endowed Scholarship and the Roy Casanova Endowed Scholarship.

Chapter History

The EMU Latino Alumni Chapter became official February 6, 1999, through a group of dedicated alumni who had a vision to enhance the university's commitment to Latino students and bring awareness to the uniqueness of being Latino. The chapter has collaborated with various University departments in the recruitment and retention of Latinos, supporting the EMU Latino students and doing community outreach. A milestone for the chapter was to be recognized on October 7, 2000, as Chapter of the Year during EMU Homecoming weekend. The EMU Latino Student Association also expressed it's appreciation during the annual LSA awards banquet April 19, 2002, when the chapter was presented with the Organization of the Year Award.
