Overview and metadata sections
The Association of Princeton Puerto Rican Alumni (APPRA) was founded in September 1982. The APPRA grew out of a need among Puerto Rican alumni to assist in increasing the recruitment and admissions of Puerto Rican students to the university, and to encourage a thriving Puerto Rican community on campus. Over time the APPRA and other Puerto Rican and Latinx communities on campus consolidated to form the Association of Latino Princeton Alumni (ALPA).
