The Latinx Community-University Research Coalition of Indiana aims to connect university faculty, students, and staff interested in working with Latinos, with community organizations that serve this population. The ultimate purpose of the Coalition is to address equity and wellbeing across the state of Indiana through interdisciplinary collaborations for research and programmatic service aimed at improving the well-being of the Latino population in Indiana.
About the Latinx Community-University Coalition
The mission of the Latinx Community-University Research Coalition of Indiana is to increase the quality of life and well-being of Latino families in Indiana through collaborative ventures between universities, the Latino community and the organizations that serve the community. These ventures will include research, programmatic services, and other collaborations.
We envision a healthy and dynamic Latino community in Indiana that is integrated into the general population of the state. Our main strategy is to connect university faculty, students and staff interested in working with Latinos, with community organizations that serve this population and, when necessary, train researchers in community based research that is respectful of the needs and interests of the population.
