Mission & Vision Statements
Latin Dreams is a residential community that assists in fostering an empowered community that contributes to the successful education, retention, identity development, and the leadership potential of our Latino men at the University of North Texas. This unique residential environment combines curricular and co-curricular activities designed to enhance each student’s overall college experience. Men will be able to identify and explore what it truly means to be living as a Latino in current America. With the guidance of a mentor, the staff in the Multicultural Center, and the faculty in the Latino/a and Mexican American Studies they will develop their knowledge of Latin Americans in the United States and across the diasporas. With these tools they will be able to create connections with university staff and faculty and explore their leadership capabilities through social and cultural organizations. Students in the Latin Dreams community will also be introduced to a variety of cultural focused programs, community service opportunities, and staff and faculty members that will help connect them and grow during their time at UNT.
