About LAGAPSA

Latin Mexican Graduate and Professional Student Assembly at the University of Pennsylvania

Mission of LAGAPSA

The Latin American Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (LAGAPSA) shall enhance the quality of life for graduate and professional students of Latin American, Latina/o/x, 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 of LAGAPSA

During the 2005-2006 academic year, a group of committed Latin American and Latina/o/x 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 Latina/o/x community at Penn, as well as within the administration. Since then, we have gained recognition as the lobbying group for Latin American and Latina/o/x 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.
