The UNO’s Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) would like to take a moment to congratulate all our LLS and CLS 2020 graduates and also all UNO 2020 Latinx graduates. We are extremely proud of all your accomplishments. Although, we are truly saddened to not be able to celebrate this important milestone together because of COVID-19, so we created a special video to express how proud and overjoyed we are for you all! Congratulations and celebrate this important accomplishment!

Also, a big thank you to our OLLAS Faculty that took the time to congratulate our graduates!
