The Latinx/ Hispanic Faculty and Staff Caucus is a young caucus that started on October 8th, 2012 when Dr. Yvette Huet e-mailed several dozen persons gauging interest in forming a Latino/Hispanic Faculty and Staff Organization. There it waws so much interest that soon that two meetings took place in the month of November, 2012. The first get-together social activity took place in the Potting Room in the McMillan Greenhouse. In February 12, 2013 the third meeting took place in where the attendees talk about officers and plans for a constitution. The notification of electronic voting officers and Constitution was send on March 10th, 2013. Faculty members of the now form Latinx/Hispanic Faculty and Staff Caucus participated in the 2nd Annual UNC Hispanic/Latino Faculty Forum in Wilmington, NC. This Annual Forum is a great opportunity for the faculty to connect and networking with other Latino/Hispanic Faculty from the UNC System. The forum also offer the opportunity of professional development for all the attendees. Fourth and fifth meetings took place on October 1st, 2013 and November 11th, 2013 respectively.

Our next meeting was on December 3rd, 2013 and on December 6, 2013 a social potluck to celebrate the First year of the Latino/Hispanic Faculty and Staff Caucus.
