New La Casa Latina Director – Krista L. Cortes


Wednesday, February 10, 2021

Penn alumna Krista L. Cortes has been appointed director of La Casa Latina, the main hub for Latinx students, with the goal to make space for Afro-Latinx students within the greater Latinx community.

Since her appointment in late January, Cortes said her chief objectives as director are to implement programming that connects Penn’s Latinx community with the greater Philadelphia Latinx community, and also to turn the cultural center into a Black-affirming space so Afro-Latinx students feel welcomed as well.
