"MUJER: Celebrating true leadership" is a one-day event consisting of a keynote address, panels, and talks on relevant issues regarding women in key leadership positions, how to increase participation in civic life, and the importance of promoting women in general within the Latino community in New York
The Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute (JLMSI) seeks to support equity by promoting academic achievement, improving outcome and career success of Mexican and Mexican American students, foster research with and about Mexico and Mexicans in the US, especially in New York, and collaborate with community based and public institutions to support and empower the Mexican community, especially through education. The Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute at CUNY has its administrative base at Lehman College but its reach and mandate are CUNY-wide. This mission aligns directly with CUNY’s larger mission of excellence and access in higher education.
