Yale Latino Alumni Association of the Tri-State Area (YLAA–TSA)

Yale Latino Alumni Association of the Tri-State Area (YLAA-TSA) serves as an organization supporting the diverse communities of Latinos joined by their connections to Yale University who are residing in or otherwise affiliated with the Tri-State Area. Reflecting the interests and needs of Latinos from different national origins and Yale schools, YLAA-TSA functions as a link to and advocate with both the National Yale Latino Alumni Association (YLAA) and the University. To facilitate a continued bond among all Yale Latinos in the Tri-State Area, YLAA-TSA provides a flexible structure that both respects and encourages the shared interests of its membership.

YLAA-TSA hopes to leverage the skills, opportunities, and resources we have available to us as Yale Graduates to help Yale achieve its broader social impact. To this end, YLAA-TSA along with the National YLAA and its affiliates are actively involved in: creating networking opportunities for alumni, mentoring and supporting current Latino students, advocating for progress at Yale in areas such as Latino recruitment and diversity of faculty and curriculum, and maintaining consistent, continued collaboration and communication with the University.
