College recruitment and info session for Latinx students
This spring, the Philadelphia Learning & Achievement Network (PLAN), a partnership between Temple University, St. Joseph’s University, Lincoln University of PA, and the Community College of Philadelphia, will be hosting an on-campus event geared towards Latino high school and community college students in the Philadelphia area.

2. Inform 12th grade-community college students about the transfer/dual admission process with area 4 year colleges/universities
3. Provide an opportunity to hear from/speak with prominent members of the LatinX community from the Philadelphia area
4. Encourage more LatinX students to apply and enroll at local universities/colleges
LatinX will take place:
