Northwestern University (Evanston, Ill.). Department of Hispanic/Latino Student Affairs


Hispanic/Latino Student Affairs (H/LSA) at Northwestern University is a division of Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA). H/LSA’s mission, according to Northwestern’s Council of Latino Admission Volunteers for Education (CLAVE)’s webpage, “is to provide services and programs that support the collegiate experience of Hispanic and Latino students. H/LSA seeks to meet the needs of our ever-changing student population through advising, outreach, referrals and collaborative initiatives. We strive to enhance the cultural, social, intellectual and professional development of students so that they may lead informed and successful lives.”

Hispanic/Latino Student Affairs (H/LSA) at Northwestern University was founded in 2000. Also known as Hispanic/Latino Student Outreach prior to 2000, and sometimes referred to in the records as Hispanic/Latino Student Services (H/LSS), H/LSA served Hispanic and Latino students as a standalone department until 2004, when it was brought under the umbrella of Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA).

In 2015, H/LSA and three other departments (African American Student Affairs (AASA), Asian/Asian American Student Affairs (A/AASA), and the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC)) reorganized into a single MSA unit.
