The theme of this year’s event is “Celebrating Our Legacy: Ensuring Our Future/ Celebrando Nuestro Legado y Asegurando Nuestro Futuro.” The celebration goes from Friday, September 18th through Sunday, September 20th.
Chican@ and Latin@ alumni have not gathered on campus as an organized group for more than 40 years, which makes this celebration a historic one that you don’t want to miss! The Chican@ Latin@ Student Development Office (CLSD), in partnership with the Chican@ Latin@ Alumni Association (CLAA), the Center for Latino Policy Research (CLPR) and other Chican@ and Latin@ spaces and places on campus have been collaborating with each other to make this event possible. As part of our legacy of giving back to the campus community, we have created 14 fundraising initiatives that prioritize Chican@ and Latin@ student and community issues. To check out the initiatives, please visit our “Giving Back” page.
This much anticipated three-day weekend celebration includes a Bienvenida-Welcome Reception, Education Summit, Student-Alumni Engagement, Gala Dinner, and Scholarship Brunch. We are excited to welcome back our alumni to campus to connect them with current students, faculty, and staff! We hope you will join us in expanding our Cal Chican@ and Latin@ alumni networks. The goal is to maintain and strengthen our legacy of advocating for the recruitment, retention, and overall success of Chican@ and Latin@ students, staff, and faculty at UC Berkeley!
