Latino Success & Leadership

Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA) is committed to educating the University of North Georgia (UNG) community about the history and cultural of Latino/Hispanic people. In addition, MSA seeks to develop Latino/Hispanic leaders to serve the local community and beyond.

MSA and the coordinator for Multicultural Student Affairs and Latino Success prepares students for leadership and service by planning, developing, and implementing programs that:

  • develop oral and written communication skills, creative and critical thinking and intercultural competence;
  • promote an understanding and appreciation of various cultures;
  • develop specific knowledge and skills needed for the pursuit of professional careers and/or graduate study; and
  • help develop character by encouraging self-confidence, inclusivity, ethical behavior, academic excellence and a commitment to social justice.
