Union Theological Seminary's Latin@ Caucus seeks to:

  • Encourage students, staff and faculty to critically examine Union's role in fostering Latino/a ministry.
  • Deepen knowledge of Latina/o cultures among Latina/o students and the broader UTS Community.
  • Identify opportunities for UTS students to learn from Hispanic ministry.
  • Provide an environment of fellowship "por el pueblo y para el pueblo", through peer-to-peer academic mentoring and social support.
  • Foster and maintain alliances among groups from diverse cultural backgrounds in the collective struggle for social justice.
  • Promote interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the Latina/o religio-spiritual experience.
  • Foster and promote ethnographic and community building projects related to the diverse Latino community of New York City.
