LNACC provides a supportive, inclusive environment as well as programs that empower students to excel and stretch themselves in diversity while offering opportunities to serve their community.
The LNACC was founded in the summer of 1971 by three students (Tony Zavala, Ruth Pushetonequa and Rusty Barceló) as the Chicano and Indian American Student Union. The original site of the center as at 115 North Clinton. In 1973, the center was moved to its current location, and in 1994 renamed the Latino Native American Cultural Center.
The UI Cultural and Resource Centers provide intra- and cross-cultural education, leadership and organizational development opportunities, social justice education and change, a "home away from home" for students, and a safe space for cultural and psychosocial development. The Centers compliment the academic mission of the University by enhancing students' experiences inside and outside of the classroom.
