Club - The NU Chapter of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad / Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc.
Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad / Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. (LPC) is a nationally recognized sorority under the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations. Our vision is to create a lifetime network of Hermanas dedicated to empowering themselves and their communities. Our mission is to empower women by providing a supportive network dedicated to their personal and professional advancement. Our Hermandad is further advanced by our shared dedication and promotion of public service and cultural awareness, with an emphasis on Latino history, contributions, and experiences. Our ideals as an organization are La Comunidad (the community), La Cultura Latina (the latin culture), and La Hermandad (the sisterhood).
Nu Chapter has had its charter since 1999, founded on the campus of Harvard University. Nu Chapter is currently a city-wide chapter, with Hermanas at Northeastern University, Tufts University, Bentley University and UMASS Lowell. While we are a Latina-based sorority, we are not a Latina-exclusive sorority. Therefore the events and goals we set always keep the Latin community and culture in mind, but the women who set to accomplish those goals do not always identify as Latina. These events range from socials where people can gather over Latin food or a fun activity while engaging with one another to professional development workshops where attendees leave with tangible results. We also host philanthropic events based on, but not exclusive to, the philanthropic pursuits of our national organization, which are Project L.E.A.A.P., which works on increasing HIV/AIDS awareness and education or Proyecto H.A.C.E.R., where we help younger generations fulfill their higher education goals.
