Our Mission

The mission of Centro Hispano is to nurture students into becoming strong  leaders, representative of all the core values of UNCW, through the promotion of academic excellence, cultural representation and leadership development. Centro Hispano serves as a link between students and all available resources needed for their academic growth, as well as for their development as future professionals. We focus on embracing and nurturing diversity, student leadership development and best practices and use of resources for academic success. Our emphasis on diversity is exemplified by our goal of increasing the representation of the diversity within the Hispanic culture through students, faculty, staff, campus events, curriculum and community engagement. Our focus on student leadership development provides students with enrichment opportunities such as leadership conferences, leadership seminars and certificates, as well as leadership roles within our campus and community.

Our Goal

The goal of Centro Hispano is to support the rapidly growing number of Hispanic students applying, attending and completing degrees at UNCW. We promote opportunities that broaden understanding and appreciation of diverse Hispanic cultures and offer resources, such as support networks, that maximize the success of each student. Our initiatives include establishing local service learning internships and volunteer opportunities, linking students with professional mentors, and most importantly, providing a place where every student feels at home while striving for success.

Our History

Centro Hispano originated through the efforts of a distinguished faculty member who saw the need to increase diversity on campus, particularly the Latino demographic. At that time, Centro Hispano had no budget, office or staff. Today, Centro Hispano serves close to 1,000 Hispanic/Latino students who attend UNCW and reaches out to the local community with several initiatives, mentoring programs, cultural events and special outreach programming.

Centro Hispano allows YOU to:

  • Organize multi-cultural events on campus
  • Fully develop your leadership skills
  • Participate in many social and community service activities
  • Be part of the UNCW Hispanic /Latino family
