Campus-Community Collaborations

Since its inception, the ISLFC has been committed to being part of a community of Latinos and non-Latinos engaging in the practice of reflective action, or praxis. Situated within a public university, we are committed to learning, critique and creation of new knowledge. Committed to being of service to the community, we engage in action that builds community, explores and dismantles barriers, and is informed by the wisdom of communities and traditional forms of knowledge.

Latino Conference

Strengthening and Valuing Latino/a Communities in Iowa Annual Conference: The Strengthening and Valuing Latino/a Communities in Iowa conference is an opportunity to explore the changing demographics and dynamics of Latina/o communities in Iowa and the Midwest , as well as, the responsiveness of policy makers, business leaders and community-based organizations. The conference is sponsored by the University of Iowa School of Social Work and planned by a statewide volunteer planning committee. The "Latino Conference" has grown to be a cherished gathering of Latinos and non-Latinos as a place to emphasize culture as a strength and provide networking opportunities for Latino/a leaders who live and work in Iowa .

Latinos in Action

Latinos in Action Week at The University of Iowa is a celebration of Latinos who have, through their lives and work, created a positive impact on the world.  

In the past we have honored César Chávez, political activist, a champion for labor and civil rights, community servant and catalyst for non-violent social change.  César was and remains today the most influential Latino labor leader in the history of the American labor movement.
