Support and Resources


Centro Cultural César Chávez at Oregon State University

The Centro Cultural César Chávez exists to support the Latinx and Chicanx student community in the achievement of their educational and professional goals and retention of their culture. Further, we provide a space for students to share their culture and heritage with the broader OSU community and inform the OSU community about issues central to Chicanx/Latinx people. 



Juntos (meaning “together” in Spanish) works to empower families around education. Uniting with community partners to provide culturally relevant programming for 8-12th grade students and their parents, Juntos is designed to provide families with knowledge, skills, and resources to prevent youth from dropping out of high school, and to encourage families to work together to gain access to college.


Vamos OSU Alumni Network

Vamos OSU is open to all graduates and friends who identify with and support OSU’s Latinx and Chicanx communities. Our goal is to hold space for learning and healing, fostering mentorship between alumni and students, and facilitating new connections.


casa latinos Unidos

We provide services to people residing in Benton and Linn Counties. Although there are other agencies that provide services to Latinos, Casa Latinos Unidos is the only community-based organization that is culturally-specific in both counties. We provide free or low-cost basic needs services and culturally-specific programs exclusively to the Latino and Latinx community.
