PORTAL unites faculty, students, advocates, community-based and faith-based service providers, policy makers and other stakeholders committed to researching and addressing the systemic issues that impact the U.S. Latino community’s ability to meet their needs, achieve self-sufficiency and exercise their inalienable human and civil rights.

We do this by facilitating sustainable multidisciplinary collaborations in research, education, and public service and outreach.

Current Projects:

  • PORTAL is conducting the first-ever comprehensive needs assessment of the Hispanic/Latino community in Athens-Clarke County. The study focuses on access to basic services like healthcare, education, public transportation, language services, legal aid, among others. Results will be shared with service providers in the public, private and community sectors, to increase awareness of existing gaps and encourage they be addressed.
