Any University of Iowa faculty or staff person who is concerned with promoting the status of Latinxs at The University of Iowa is eligible for membership regardless of race, color, creed, age, national origin, religion, ethnic background, sex, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation or veteran status. 

The UI Latinx Council primarily leads or promotes events that are related to Latinx culture. Each fall we host a welcome event for current members and any interested staff, faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students that are interested in joining. We host brown bag lunches and meetings every semester for our members.

Our members are often asked to serve on committees at The University of Iowa. Recently our members have been appointed to serve on the Reimagining Campus Safety Action Committee, Charter Committee on DEI, the Presidential Search Committee. Our Executive Board also serves on the Diversity Council and they collaborate with the AVP for DEI throughout the year.

We support student organizations that further Latinx interests such as LNACC and ALMA. In the past our council used to plan and organize Latinx Graduation ceremonies. Graduation planning now falls under LNACC but we continue to offer support by serving on their graduation committee.
