Latinos in Architecture_Student Chapter is the first LiA student organization that focuses on promoting the work of the Latino community in the design field. After personal discoveries, we realized that most students in the School of Architecture at UTA are Latinos, yet there wasn’t a specific organization that represented this reality. In response to being underrepresented, we created LiA to foster a place where students can network and gain skills that will contribute to their career success. As a group that holds significant ground, we want to make our voices heard and positively impact our community.


Raising awareness of the importance of Latinos in the design field and creating opportunities that prepare students to reach their potential.
