Our History

In September 1972, Proyecto Pa'Lante was established as an educational outreach program for the Latino community, providing academic support services on campus. The program was created by the Division of Student Affairs for Latino students with input from Puerto Rican and Chicano/Mexicano students who comprised the Union for Puerto Rican Students (UPRS).


Proyecto Pa’Lante provides a holistic approach to enhance student learning, intercultural competencies, and leadership development through excellent programs and services that have traditionally and continue to create a strong University support network for Latino students transitioning to, and within, Northeastern Illinois University.
