The Hmong Culture LLC, located in Governors Hall, is designed to provide a supportive and encouraging environment for students who are interested in learning about Hmong heritage, history, and culture. This community is designed for all students: those who personally identify with their Hmong heritage as well as students who are non-Hmong and have an interest in Hmong Culture for their personal, academic, and professional development.
Students participating in the Hmong Culture LLC will have the opportunity to sign up for a Hmong language course in the Fall semester, and a Hmong history and culture course taught in the Spring semester (these are required for incoming first-year students to the LLC.)
Students will also take part in monthly activities aimed at sharing both traditional and contemporary Hmong cultural practices in a fun and social way. Participants will be able to participate together in travel/immersion trips to learn about the development of Hmong culture in other areas of the United States. The Hmong Culture LLC will work together to raise funds and secure grants to make trips affordable for students.
The Hmong Culture LLC is located adjacent to the Leadership LLC, and the two communities will work together closely for shared events, and to develop multicultural leadership competence.
