The Office of Hispanic Affairs is all about people! Estamos aqui para ti! This office offers many opportunities.

We are completely dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.

Our main purpose is to provide you with the tools you need for success: financial and academic assistance, moral support and a comfortable environment where you can properly function as a student and as a person.

We will help you feel at home in an area where you can interact with people of similar experiences and backgrounds so your culture is preserved.

We have the responsibility to serve as a bridge between you and the bureaucracy of the University. Also, one of our most important functions is to help the professors, advisors, counselors and any ENMU staff understand the needs and diversity of every student.

Remember, Hispanic Affairs is here para ti! If you have questions about financial aid, tutoring, scholarships or organizations you can join, or if you just want a friendly person you can talk to, come by the Office of Hispanic Affairs. We are all part of a big familia! We look forward to meeting you.
