What is LILI? 

The Latina/x  and Indigenous Leadership Institute (LILI) is a student success initiative supporting the personal and professional development of Latina/x and indigenous students through culturally relevant programming that amplifies and affirms their voices. 

Programming Areas 

  • Personal and Professional Development 
  • Cultural Nourishment 
  • Community Building 

Why Latina/x and Indigenous? 

LILI as a group is intended to support Latina students at UT, where they are the third-largest student population. It is a gender inclusive organization that supports students of all Latinx genders, as well as those that do not identify with a gender. LILI is a space for Latina/x and Indigenous/First Nation people who have traditional ties to tribal communities or are themselves part of the movement and migration.
