Puentes 2022 - 2023

The mission of Puentes is to create an equitable space that centers the intersectional identities of incoming and current Latinx graduate students across schools, departments, and disciplines at U-M. We strive to foster a space of community, healing, and empowerment, where students feel supported and equipped to advocate for their needs and the needs of their community during and beyond their academic tenure at U-M. 

We hope to see you at some of our events this year!
