The Center was initially led by Rubén Stern, who served as Director for 24 years. He was succeeded by Julián Cancino (2017-2019) and Marvin Casasola (2020- ).
Beginning in the late 1990s, the Latinx Center has been affiliated with the Association of Latin American Students, the Latino Peer Leaders Program, the Tufts Society of Latinx Engineers and Scientists, and special interest housing, La Casa Latina. The Association of Latin American Students (ALAS) is a student-run organization that holds weekly meetings to discuss issues in the Latino community. The Latino Peer Leaders (LPL) Program assigns upperclassmen that identify as Latinx, Caribbean, or Latin American to first-year students. As a mentor, the LPL provides guidance and support throughout the year. Tufts Society of Latinx Engineers and Scientists (SOLES) supports minorities majoring in STEM fields. La Casa Latina is one of Tufts’ six special interest housing options, open to juniors and seniors.
