The Latino Center was founded in 1993 to provide emotional and structural support to the Latinx, Caribbean, and Latin American students at Tufts. Originally located at 55 Talbot Avenue, the Latino Center has been at 226 College Avenue since 2000. Beginning in the late 1990s, the Latino Center has been affiliated with the Association of Latin American Students, the Latino Peer Leaders Program, the Tufts Society of Latinx Engineers and Scientists, and the special interest house, La Casa Latina. As of 2017, the Latino Center is managed by Julián Cancino. Prior to Cancino, Rubén Stern served as director for 24 years. The Association of Latin American Students (ALAS) is a student-run organization that holds weekly meetings to discuss issues in the Latino community. The Latino Peer Leaders (LPL) Program assigns upperclassmen that identify as Latinx, Caribbean, or Latin American to first-year students. As a mentor, the LPL provides guidance and support throughout the year. Tufts Society of Latinx Engineers and Scientists (SOLES) supports minorities majoring in STEM fields. La Casa Latina is one of Tufts' six special interest housing options, open to juniors and seniors.
