The Student Life Center for Belonging and Social Change’s Latinx Initiatives offers a home away from home for Latino students across Ohio State. We focus on the most salient issues impacting the Latino community at Ohio State. The scope of these programs addresses the changing advocacy needs of Latinos in local and national contexts, as well as in the Ohio State campus community. Heritage and awareness programming offer a place for everyone to explore the diversity among Latinos, traditions, cultural heritage and identity.

The CBSC offers an open and affirming space for students to develop leadership and wellness skills, and to find community together.
