If you read our about page you are hopefully clear about what Desarrolla is and what our goal is within the Duke community.
If not perhaps this will help:
- Unlike other organizations and societies on campus whose purpose is to connect students from the same Latin American/Hispanic background, Desarrolla is not classified as an ethnic, racial or religious oriented organization. Meaning that you don’t have to have a Latin American background to join.
- You do not need to speak Spanish or learn Spanish to be part of Desarrolla. For example if you are doing an abroad program with Duke (Duke engage, volunteering, field trips etc), do you have to know the language spoken there? No, right? The same applies to Desarrolla!
- If we are not a social organization, what are we? and why do we promote/ host events that have to do with Latin America?
- Desarrolla’s goal is to connect Duke with Latin America in a proportional By proportional we mean that both Duke and Latin America offer each other unique opportunities. Most people believe that Latin America is mostly a place you go to volunteer, however the region is full of amazing opportunities that are invaluable for college students and graduates alike.
- Desarrolla focuses on making these opportunities accessible to Duke students and provides guidance to them when they decide to explore them further
- Desarrolla also connects Latin American organizations and research teams to Duke in order to create a network of contacts between many different fields of academia.
- Finally we promote and host events that celebrate Latin America and the Duke-LATAM connection to foster interest in what Latin America has to offer and to promote the image that the region already has but is often overshadowed by the negative aspects represented through the media and stereotypes.
Hope this helps and we look forward to reading through your applications!
