University of Puerto Rico at Cayey Chancellor Visits Paseo Boricua



On Tuesday July 23, Dr. Juan N. Varona Echeandža, Chancellor of the University of Puerto Rico at Cayey, visited Chicago's Puerto Rican community. He was given a tour of the greenhouse at Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School and shown the recently opened exhibits at the Institute of Puerto Rican Art and Culture. One of those exhibits, Fotos de Ramon Frade, is part of the museum at the University of Puerto Rico at Cayey's permanent collection and on loan to IPRAC. This transnational collaboration is the first of its kind between a museum in Puerto Rico and Chicago. Dr. Varona was extremely impressed with the work taking place in the community and reaffirmed his continued commitment to building the relationship between the University and the community to create more opportunities for further exchanges between the two communities moving into the future.

"The future of our 'hood starts with us!"

We want to redefine education, rescue our community from violence, addiction, and displacement; set the stage for an artistic renaissance, and build a culture of excellence. Want to join us?


In this assembly, we will discuss the status of youth in Humboldt Park - our issues, concerns, and vision for a better community - and describe the different initiatives that we want you to be a part of!


This will also be the kickstart event of the Humboldt Park Youth Leadership Institute (YLI), one of the three institutes of the 'Community as a Campus' model being implemented in area schools. 


Please RSVP at Forward this to any youth in Humboldt Park!
