Latino Initiatives

The University of Toledo's Office of Latino Initiatives forms partnerships with communities, K-12 public and private schools, and businesses in an effort to close the Latino achievement gap. These partnerships will give Hispanic students the support they need to succeed from kindergarten through high school and beyond. Key components include: a common vision of a brighter future for Latinos; collaborative work in cultural and educational coalitions; and focus on strengthening the Latino student transition from school-university-community.

Mentorship Opportunities: PRIMOS

PRIMOS is designed is to help first year (direct from high school) Latino students successfully make the transition from high school to college through peer and professional mentorship, culturally-relevant workshops, exposure trips and conference travel.  Participants will receive: financial support for conference registration, leadership & diversity training, and priority for scholarship and other campus development opportunities.  To view other mentorship opportunities through OMSS click here.
