In 1969, Latinos Unidos En Poder (L.U.E.P) was founded by a group of Puerto Rican students at Livingston College. L.U.E.P was the first minority organization founded at Rutgers University. As a pioneer of civil rights history, it opened the doors for other Latino organizations on campus. Throughout the years, L.U.E.P.’s purpose has shifted from cultural to political to social agendas in order to fit the needs of its diverse membership. However, L.U.E.P.’s mission has always remained the same: to promote and encourage the growth and success of the Latino community at Rutgers University and beyond. We motivate students to become leaders in our society and, in turn, participate in and organize events that raise consciousness of the social, cultural, political, educational, and economic issues that affect the lives of Latinos everywhere.
This is a campus group.
