National Events

Raices Week

Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. is the proud sponsor of our annual National RAICES (Roots); a week long, series of events, which are held nationally during the last week of September. Every chapter enthusiastically participates by hosting a variety of events while promoting and celebrating Latino heritage and culture on their respective campus and/or community. You will find at any given moment throughout the week, our Hermanas offering a variety of events that are enlightening, thought-provoking and focused on cultural enrichment, women's issues, community service and scholarship. All of which revolve around the chosen topic for the year.

Past Raices Themes

Founders Week

Every year during the first weekend in December, Hermanas from across the country reunite to celebrate and rejoice in the fruition of Sincerity, Loyalty and Unity. We honor our establishment through a weekend filled with outstanding educational, professional and culturally enriching workshops and programming. This annual event enables our Hermanas to enhance their development as students, campus leaders, professionals, mothers, and local community members.

In addition to the professional development portion, we utilize this time to recognize the astonishing accomplishments of our Hermanas and their respective chapters. We acknowledge their undying dedication and great strength in fulfilling the goals and ideals of the organization by awarding them with our National Cacique and Avance Awards.

This year we’re celebrating 30 years in our beloved Alpha chapter at Binghamton University!

The National Leadership Institute, held in June of each year, is the annual business meeting of Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. In addition to conducting business, the Institute offers professional development sessions, strategic conversations with our National Leadership Team, networking opportunities, and sisterhood bonding sessions.
