Established in 2021, the mission of the Latinx Alumni Network at Davidson (LAND) is to provide a member-focused group dedicated to providing community-building, support, advocacy, visibility and programming for Latinx alumni at Davidson. 

The Latinx Alumni Network at Davidson seeks to build an inclusive campus and community culture by serving as a bridge between Latinx students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the broader college community both on and off campus. Objectives include:

  • Facilitating community-building, mentoring and professional development opportunities among  Latinx students and alumni
  • Advocating for a safe and inclusive college community for Latinx students on-campus by supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives
  • Engaging in dialogue around Latinx-community and culture, identity, and race at Davidson College and beyond
  • Sharing information about opportunities for Latinx alumni to get involved in college volunteer and service opportunities
  • Collaborating with constituents and partner organizations at Davidson
