SOMOS seeks to promote community awareness of issues important to the Hispanic, Chicano/a/x, and Latino/a/x community as well as create a welcoming environment for all students to network and create new life experiences. We hope to bring knowledge/awareness to Regis community about our culture to create tolerance in our everchanging demographic. We also support the Jesuit mission of the search for truth, values, and a just experience.
