About Us

Mission

The Latin American Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (LAGAPSA) shall enhance the quality of life for graduate and professional students of Latin American, Latino, and/or Hispanic descent at the University of Pennsylvania through a centralized, campus-wide organizational structure that addresses their academic, social, political, and cultural needs and concerns through programming, services, and advocacy.

History

During the 2005-2006 academic year, a group of committed Latin American and Latino/a graduate and professional students at Penn started LAGAPSA. Their first efforts included putting together an Executive Board and publicizing their existence within the Latin American and Latino/a community at Penn, as well as within the administration. Since then, we have gained recognition as the lobbying group for Latin American and Latino/a graduate and professional students across the University.

In conjunction with cultural centers and other student organizations,  we provide a centralized, campus-wide organizational structure that addresses our needs and concerns through programming, services, and advocacy.
