Welcome/Bienvenides/Bem-vindes to La Casa Cultural de Julia de Burgos, affectionately known as La Casa!  La Casa is the Latine Cultural Center at Yale; we offer Yale students and community members a rich variety of social, academic, and cultural resources in a warm and vibrant environment.

Mission Statement

Building on a strong campus community, the Latine Cultural Center promotes a sense of unity among Latine people at Yale. We are committed to providing a comfortable space where our diverse cultural heritage, history and traditions can be celebrated and explored by all Yale University and New Haven community members. In partnership with our resident organizations, La Casa provides opportunities that foster a sense of belonging and pride while supporting the intellectual, personal, leadership and social development of our students.

Land Acknowledgement

Thanks to the ongoing advocacy efforts of staff and students in the Native American Cultural Center, Yale has a land acknowledgement to honor and respect the original stewards of the lands and waterways we occupy, pasted below.

Yale University acknowledges that indigenous peoples and nations, including Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Niantic, and the Quinnipiac and other Algonquian speaking peoples, have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now the state of Connecticut.  We honor and respect the enduring relationship that exists between these peoples and nations and this land.
