Overview and metadata sections

Association of Latino Princeton Alumni

The Association of Latino Princeton Alumni (ALPA) was formed in 1989 with the dual mission of supporting and enhancing the role and presence of Latinos at all levels within the University as well as forming a network of Latino alumni. ALPA maintains a close relationship with other alumni organizations, as well as produces a newsletter, oversees regional committees, and runs a mentor program for Latino undergraduates.

The collection documents the origins and development of the Association of Latino Princeton Alumni and contains minutes, board documents, correspondence, campaign materials for a Latino Studies program, and the organization's public website.

The collection was initially transferred to the University Archives in 2001 (AR.2001.006 and AR.2001.098). In 2017, series 2 (AR.2017.017) was donated to the University Archives as part of a collecting drive held in conjuction with the Princeton Alumni Association's ¬°Adelante Tigres! conference.
