Latin Dreams

Mission & Vision Statements

Latin Dreams is a residential community that assists in fostering an empowered community that contributes to the successful education, retention, identity development, and the leadership potential of our Latino men at the University of North Texas. This unique residential environment combines curricular and co-curricular activities designed to enhance each student’s overall college experience all while living together in Crumley. Participants will be able to identify and explore what it truly means to be living as a Latinx-identified person in current America. With the guidance of a mentor, the staff in the Multicultural Center, and committed faculty, they will develop their knowledge of Latin Americans in the United States and across the diasporas. Students will also have an opportunity to engage with theories and ideas centered around masculinity and machismo. With these tools they will be able to create connections with university staff and faculty and explore their leadership capabilities through social and cultural organizations all while reflecting inwards. Students in the Latin Dreams community will also be introduced to a variety of cultural focused programs, community service opportunities, and staff and faculty members that will help connect them and grow during their time at UNT.

Engagement includes some events like:

  • Dia De Los Muertos
  • Intramural Sports as a Community
  • Men of Color Faculty and Staff Mixers 
  • Mental Health Trainings
  • Community Building
  • Co-curricular activities 
  • Big Event
