There are several existing organizations at PAU interested in improving Latinx representation at PAU. These organizations are also interested in improving the lives of Latinx locally, nationally, and beyond through service, research, and more. These organizations include:

  • La Clínica Latina, which provides mental health services in Spanish to the local community while providing students with valuable training

  • The PAU Latinx Students Organization (PULSO), which provides a community for existing and potential Latinx and non-Latinx students alike at PAU

  • Latinx-focused research groups, including labs led by Drs. Barrera, Bunge, Muñoz, and Patel, which have ongoing projects focused on Latinx. These labs provide opportunities for students (including undergraduates) interested in serving Latinx through research.

  • The National Latina/o Psychological Association (NLPA), whose members include Dr. Barrera and her students. Dr. Barrera is heavily involved in planning the next NLPA conference. Students and faculty are equally encouraged to become active NLPA members.
