Alliance of Latin American Students (ALAS)
The goal of the Alliance of Latin American Students is to raise awareness of the different Latin American cultures within the Haverford community and, more importantly, to increase the appreciation of these various cultures. These goals are exemplified through the many activities that the club sponsors.
Our mission is to inform the Haverford community about Latino/Hispanic culture and identity through diverse perspectives. Our intended audience is to cater to those who are interested about learning about Latin culture as well as spreading awareness across campus. We also hope to provide a niche for Latin American-identified students to talk about how their identity enriches their Haverford experience as well as what role it plays during their time here. Finally, current ALAS members will continue to discuss Latin American issues as well as issues that the Latino population in the United States face as a way to apply the Haverford academic experience within ALAS meetings.
