About the UI Latino Council

The purpose of the UILC is to create a University environment that addresses the needs and concerns of Latino faculty, staff and students.

The University of Iowa UI Latino Council (formerly, Council on the Status of Latinos) was established in the Fall of 1989 by a group of Latino faculty and staff in response to issues raised by their constituencies who historically have been underrepresented in institutions of higher education. The CSL is an advisory body to the University and is funded by the Office of the Provost.


Any University of Iowa faculty or staff person who is concerned with promoting the status of Latinos 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.
