Developing the Next Generation of Latina/o Leaders
Join the Latina/o Studies Program for a presentation lead by Eric Hernandez, a UM alumnus currently working for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.
In 1978, three Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus identified the need for more Latinos in public service. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, Inc. was formed as a non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization to develop the next generation of Latino leaders. Today, CHCI is an educational clearinghouse, administering nationally-recognized fellowship and internship opportunities year-round, which expose young Latino leaders to the world of politics and policy in Washington, DC.
CHCI hosts a platform of leadership development programs, which equip young Latino leaders with the tools they need to be successful in the public and private sectors. Through scholarship, internship, and fellowship opportunities, CHCI is committed to the education and engagement of Latinos, based upon the principles of excellence, leadership, professionalism, and service.
