Purpose: The 2010 Latino Gala is an opportunity for the University of Michigan Latino community and allies to come together in unity, and celebrate Latino success on campus and beyond. We will be commemorating the accomplishments of community members off campus, graduating seniors, and graduating high school seniors. In addition, we will showcase different forms of expression of art that represent our culture.

An important question: How do your origins as a Latino make you unique, yet still connect you to other Latinos?

The idea that our origins are “cosmic” is that it represents our culture which is diverse, extensive, far-reaching and constantly evolving. Cosmic is defined as global, huge, immense, infinite, limitless, universal, and vast. The Latino culture consists of Indigenous roots, African roots, European roots, Arabic roots, and the list goes on. Whether you speak Spanish or not, we want to embrace Latino culture with its heterogeneous components.

This is open to Latino students, allies, faculty, staff, and the community outside of UM.
