About LASO

Mision y Valores

"We are members of the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) at the University of San Francisco. LASO is a multi-cultural club on campus dedicated to increase Latin@ cultural awareness throughout the university. It is our commitment to educate ourselves as well as others about our culture, our heritage, our diversity, and our roots in order to better empower one another. We are dedicated to voicing issues of the Latin@ community within campus as well as with the community at large. It is essential for us to be inclusive and welcoming to all students of different ethnicities and nationalities. We honor each other’s opinion by coming together and celebrating our achievements. LASO will maintain a safe environment and assist all members in any way possible to make their experience at USF memorable."
