Lourdes Students Encourage Inclusion for Students of Color


On a campus like Lourdes University, the value of community means inclusion. We, the Black Student Union President, Tania Davis, and Latinx Student Union President, Amanda Vargas, know the importance of this all too well. Looking back on the past couple of years, maintaining a safe space of diversity and inclusion on college campuses has never been more crucial. 


BSU and LSU are a major key in giving students a voice and a safe space. Being part of a student union at Lourdes University is more than just a student organization. We provide support, and guidance while voicing our opinions on issues on and off campus. Lourdes University provides us with opportunities to be heard as people and future professionals.


We have benefitted from those opportunities to ensure campus is inclusive. Now with the support of faculty and staff, we continue working towards unionizing the Black and Latinx communities represented at Lourdes. Utilizing the Spring semester to strongly brand ourselves, our student unions are ready to ensure that inclusivity reaches every corner of our beautiful campus. In doing this, we can hold space for navigating through the often-difficult conversations about the issues facing our Black and Latinx communities. 

For more information, email Lourdes University’s Latino Student Union or Black Student Union at lsu@lourdes.edu or bsu@lourdes.edu
