Welcome!

The Latin American Student Association, also called LASA, was established in 1985 at the Rochester Institute of Technology and functions as an institute organization under the African American Latin American Native American Student Association, or ACA. We provide opportunities for our members to learn, embrace, and share their Latin heritage, while at the same time creating and supporting cultural awareness in a social and familial atmosphere. Membership is open to regularly enrolled undergraduates, graduate students, post-graduates, faculty, and staff. We generally meet bi-weekly, and co-sponsor several events with affiliated organizations.

The organization is led by a group of dedicated officers that are nominated and voted for by the membership. Committees are also in place to help plan events. To learn more about LASA please feel free to browse through our site and take a look at our Constitution.
