The Latinx Handbook

The Latinx Handbook is a collaboration project between various members of the Latinx community inspired by the reflection of the needs of the Latinx student population at this University. Our purpose is to strengthen the Latinx community at the University of Virginia by easing the transition of incoming Latinx/Hispanic first year and transfer students. Our efforts include introducing them to the Latinx community and passing down knowledge and resources to promote a successful first year at UVA.
