Join us this Latinx Hispanic Heritage Month for our Café con Leche Series. This series allows students, student organizations, programs and departments to engage in conversation with members of the Syracuse community. Topics range from issues affecting Latinos and other racial, ethnic and cultural communities in topics ranging from education, identity and more.
Join us for our Café con Leche discussion series on “Celebrating the First-Generation College Student Experience.” We invite our campus community to engage in a conversation about what it means to be a Latinx/o/a/é first-generation college student. Our featured speaker, Saul Flores, will be discussing his experience and facilitating our discussion.
