To better support students and alumni and to maintain a supportive voice for their issues, the UI Center for Advancement is reinvigorating the Latino-Native American Alumni Alliance.

We recognize that the UI has, for years, had a goal to expand the diversity of its student body, and we wish that this goal never be forgotten. We seek to preserve our history and association with the UI, and to further the enrollment and advancement of Latino and Native American students, staff, faculty, and alumni.

We hold common goals of: supporting our youth, community, and students of the UI; utilizing and strengthening our collective resources for networking; and advancing and recruiting students. Finally, we seek to exchange information to promote our own continuing education and the advancement and professional development of all alumni.

The Latino Native American Alumni Alliance leadership board has organized into a strong alumni group, which is crucial to the success and impact of LANA3's ongoing initiatives and programming.
The LANA3 board has outlined the following priorities:
  • Plan networking events in geographic areas with large populations of Latino and Native American alumni
  • Plan alumni-student networking opportunities on campus
  • Serve as a liaison to various offices, faculty, staff, and student groups
  • Improve engagement of Latino and Native American alumni with campus activities
  • Support the Latino and Native American Cultural Center (LNACC)
  • Support K-12 programs coordinated by the University of Iowa
