Centro Hispano is a student resource center for Hispanic/Latinx students. Their goal is to support the rapidly growing number of Hispanic students applying, attending, and completing degrees at UNCW. It is a space for students to strive for success and finding “una casa lejos de casa.” The Upperman African-American Cultural Center and the LGBTQIA+ Resource Center also create safe spaces, “a home away from home,” and give students an opportunity to grow professionally. Within each diversity center, students are given the opportunity to engage in their centers through leadership development and community service in the department and student organizations within the umbrella of each resource center.
