The Latinx community at the George Washington University (GW) is a diverse group of students, faculty and staff, who represent a variety of backgrounds and experiences unified under the goal of cultural awareness. Currently, Latinx student enrollment is 7.5% at the undergraduate level and 5% at the graduate level at GW.
With 12 student organizations promoting the values and traditions of North American, Central American, South American and Caribbean cultures, Latinx programs include culture shows, distinguished guest lectures and other educational events.
From September 15 to October 15, GW celebrates Latinx heritage showcasing the rich history, culture and accomplishments of the Latinx community. The Multicultural Student Services Center provides logistical support for Latinx organizations to collaborate and promote cultural awareness.
