Established in 1972, Latinx/Chicanx Center for Advocacy and Student Affairs (La CASA) provides empowerment through cultural identity, leadership and social consciousness development, as well as community building for undergraduate and graduate students at USC.
La CASA strives to educate the campus about Latinx issues and the ethnic diversity represented within the community (i.e. Central & South America, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico), by offering programs and services that focus on intersectionality.
Latinx Honor Society
The Latinx Honor Society was established at USC in 1997 in direct response to the need of a program that recognized the academic achievements of undergraduate Latinx students as well as their dedication to the community. LHS promotes academic scholarship and commitment to community service, especially within the Latinx community.
Project ReMix: Exploring Intersectionality & Social Justice Issues
Project ReMiX is an interactive program that explores the intersectionality of identities of students from various ethnic and racial backgrounds. In order to create a culture of inclusion, Project ReMiX educates, engages, and empowers participants to understand how the complexity of their identities are linked to issues of social justice.
Power Pan Dulce Speaker Series
This program provides an informal opportunity for the USC Latinx community and friends to come together to socialize and network over sweet bread & chocolate, which includes announcements by La CASA, the Latinx Student Assembly, and any other organizations, staff, faculty and friends.
