UCI Latino Excellence and Achievement Dinner (LEAD)
Date: April 4, 2019
Location: UCI Student Center
Join us for an evening of celebration at UCI’s Latino Excellence and Achievement Dinner honoring outstanding graduate students, faculty, and alumni supporters of UCI’s Latinx community. The evening is especially meaningful given UCI’s status as a Hispanic Serving Institution.
The event seeks to:
- Celebrate Research excellence and achievements across all Schools on the UCI campus
- Recognize faculty, staff, and alumni who provide encouragement and support for the Latino community and their success
- Create a sense of community and institutional memory of academic and professional achievements in the UCI Latino community
The event was the inspiration of PhD in Education graduate Veronica Newhart, who believed the time had arrived to celebrate the accomplishments of UCI’s Latinx community.
More than 200 people were in attendance for the inaugural 2018 LEAD and students from more than 10 different UCI colleges were recognized.
