Latino Professional Alliance
The mission of Latino Professional Alliance (LPA) at the University of Rochester is to build and maintain a positive work environment and to support the growth and development of Latinos/Latinas. This will be accomplished through networking, mentoring, educational and professional programs, community service, multicultural events, and diversity awareness. Each individual employed at the University of Rochester is considered a professional, and therefore, LPA aims to build an alliance among all employees in our workplace who support LPA's mission.
