Bienvenidos al Centro Roberto Hernandez de UW-Milwaukee

Spring Semester 2024

UWM’s Roberto Hernández Center provides Latinx students a home away from home – YouTube

The Roberto Hernández Center is dedicated to serving Latinx/a/o students at UWM as well as the Latinx/a/o population of southeastern Wisconsin through a three-pronged mission: to provide academic services that promote Latinx/a/o student success, to engage in outreach to the Latinx/a/o community and beyond and to support applied research pertinent to Latinx/a/os.

HOLA Archives Podcast Project

The HOLA Archives Podcast Project is a collaboration between the UWM Libraries and the UWM Roberto Hernandez Center, and was made possible by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council. The HOLA Archives take a deep dive into the stories of Milwaukee Latino/as who fought to make Milwaukee a more welcoming community. Drawing on oral history collections at the UWM Libraries and the Wisconsin Historical Society, this set of pilot episodes tells the story of the founding of the Spanish Speaking Outreach Institute – now the Roberto Hernandez Center; and the experience of Latina activists in Milwaukee in the late 1960s-early 1970s.
