Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos!

Thank you for visiting the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Roberto Hernández Center online. Whether you are a student, parent, faculty, staff or an interested community member, this site is intended to serve you by providing information, resources and opportunities pertinent to the Latino community of southeastern Wisconsin – especially to Latino students at UWM.

The mission of the Roberto Hernández Center is to provide academic services that promote Latino student success, to engage in outreach to the Latino community and beyond and to support applied research pertinent to Latinos.

In addition, each year, the Roberto Hernández Center is the lead sponsor of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15) and Cinco de Mayo (week of May 5) events at UWM. We also support a variety of events pertinent to Latinos throughout the year, both on campus and in the community at large.

I invite and encourage you to participate in and support our varied programs. To learn more about the center, please explore the rest of this site. Or, come visit us in Bolton Hall, Room 183. You are always welcome. Siempre serán bienvenidos.

Yo soy,
Enrique E. Figueroa, Ph.D., Director
