Remembering the past, reflecting on the present, envisioning the future


There is a saying in Spanish, con el corazón en mano (with the heart in hand), which implies that someone is coming to you or welcoming you with honest and peaceful intentions. The Rafael Cintrón Ortiz Latino Cultural Center at UIC does just that for Latinos and anyone who wishes to expand their knowledge about the cultural heritage of Latino communities and promote the value of cultural diversity.
