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 Latinxs and anyone who wishes to expand their knowledge about the cultural heritage of Latinx communities and advocate for social and environmental justice.

The Latino Cultural Center (LCC) is open Monday through Thursday from 9am-5pm and Friday from 9am-3pm for the Spring 2024 semester! Welcome back!
