This last year has brought many changes, uncertainties, and stressors. LAGOS exists as an organization to provide Latinx graduate and professional students ongoing support and advocacy, and guidance through the difficulties that graduate school and the current social and political climate bring.
In Solidarity with International Students
Recent events have shed light on the importance of institutional communication and prioritizing the needs and safety of international students/professionals. LAGOS stands in solidarity with international students. We hear you, we stand for you.
The June 18, 2020 #SCOTUS decision is a victory for more than 650,000 young people who will now continue to be protected by the #DACA program. As we celebrate, we acknowledge that our work on these crucial issues is not done, and we will continue to strongly advocate for permanent legal protection for our young people. #HomeIsHere #DACA is here to stay!
