Comunidad Latina has four main objectives:

  • to introduce Latino heritage to the Muhlenberg campus and give those who may be interested the opportunity to experience it
  • to promote cultural understanding
  • to enhance Latino students' knowledge of and/or pride for their ethnic heritage which includes indigenous, African, and Spanish influences, and to support the needs and goals of our Latino students
  • to nurture an increased awareness and involvement with the Latino community of Allentown and the Lehigh Valley.

Each year Comunidad Latina sponsors a Latin Heritage Week on Muhlenberg Campus, brings in speakers from the Lehigh Valley and offers salsa dance lessons to all students.
