The campaign’s goal is to galvanize the Latino community across the country, through the sharing of inspiring personal stories – via social media – that highlight Latino success and accomplishment. Organizers expect these stories to inspire Latino youth to pursue higher education, create pride – “Orgullo Latino” – and educate both Latinos and the general population about the countless contributions that Latinos make to the U.S. every day.
3 Easy Steps to Participate and Inspire!

The Hispanic Student Association of Appalachian State University will host the 4th Annual UNC Hispanic/Latino Faculty Forum. The event will take place on the campus of Appalachian State University in the Plemmons Student Union Friday, October 9 and the Reich College of Education Building on Saturday, October 10, 2015. Based on previous forums, approximately 75 faculty, staff and students are expected to be in attendance. Since 2012, Hispanic/Latino Faculty from the UNC System have come to together to discuss relevant issues facing our Latino communities and their impact on higher education. During past forums, we have discussed issues affecting Hispanic/Latino students and faculty, such as promotion and tenure, advancing in administrative roles, Immigration, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), career paths for Latino faculty and staff, and campus initiatives from around the system. This year, the theme of the Forum is “Raíces: Mountains of Opportunities.” Famed News Correspondent, Ray Suarez, author of Latino Americans: The 500 Year Legacy That Shaped a Nation, will serve as the Keynote Speaker. His book will be distributed at no charge to forum participants.
The purpose of the Forum is to bring Hispanic/Latino faculty from the University of North Carolina System together to establish a network or community to sustain a dialog of topics pertaining to advancement in the UNC-System. The vision of the inaugural Hispanic/Latino Forum originated from a meeting attended by Dr. Maria Correa (NCSU) with Hilda Solis, U.S. Secretary of Labor and NC Hispanic/Latino leaders in 2011. Dr. Correa met other UNC System faculty and realized how little she knew about her Hispanic/Latino colleagues. At the time she was part of the NSF?NCSU ADVANCE Emerging Leaders program and the forum became part of her graduation project. She contacted colleagues from UNCW, Drs. Jose Hernandez and Edelmira Segovia, and shared her ideas. Together, they started the process of identifying forum participants, program agenda, and other essentials to launch in the first forum in 2012.
