Batten Life Student Services Student Organizations Batten LatinX Network Batten LatinX Network Batten LatinX Network Mission The mission of the Batten Latinx Network (BLN) is to form a community of Latinx students at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. Through this organization, we hope to welcome as well as recruit prospective undergraduate and graduate Latinx students, to host professional development events for prospective and current students, and to maintain relationships with our Latinx alumni. This network will also serve as a nexus to share resources to current and prospective Latinx students, such as internship information and potential job opportunities. We hope to create a community-based space of Latinx students that will support one another in their academic, social, and professional pursuits. Furthermore, we aim to facilitate the discussion of policy issues relating to the Latinx community both in America and abroad. Events The BLN holds weekly meetings in addition to application workshops and recruitment events throughout the year. Visit the BLN Facebook page for up-to-date event information.
