The Latino Leadership Institute
The Harvard Latino Leadership Initiative, sponsored by the center for public leadership, offered
five LMU students the opportunity to further develop their leadership skills. Beginning in 2010
at the Harvard Kennedy School, students spent a week immersed in an extensive development
program in which students across that nation participated.
• The program aimed:
o To enhance students’ leadership capacity and a commitment to serving the Latino
o To help participants form a strong and durable bond among themselves and with
other leaders; and
o To inspire participants to view their own possibilities and professional
With the growing population and need for Latino leadership in top career fields, the program,
was created to work with the next generation of leaders to promote success. Harvard was
provided a special grant, intended to last for 5 years, to create the initiative. LMU sent five
students to represent LMU in the program.
University of Texas A&M hosted the
initiative on their campus last year because
the grant was not sustained. Yet, Harvard
professors were flown onto the campus to
further continue the program.
Faculty and staff nominated students who
maintained a 3.2 GPA and demonstrated an
interest in leadership development. A
committee was formed to receive and
review application. Based on the feedback
from the committee, five students were
selected and sent to Harvard to represent LMU in the program.
While the program is currently in hiatus, EIS Chicano Latino Student Services has taken
measures to ensure LMU students continue to benefit from programs similar to the following.
CLSS has connected with alumni to receive feedback about what they’ve taken away from the
experience at LMU and ways to assist future students with leadership opportunities.
