As we continue our co-branding efforts, we invite you to join us in lifting a unified voice for the Latino community by engaging in our co-branding efforts. The following questionnaire will help us evaluate where the UnidosUS Affiliate network is at meeting the goals we shared this fall. We do not expect that all Affiliates will meet all the co-branding examples we shared with you, rather your participation will help us determine what barriers remain and help measure progress towards goals. 

Click here to complete the questionnaire

For your participation in this questionnaire, your agency will be entered into an opportunity drawing to win (1) $500 stipend and (2) UnidosUS 2017 Conference registrations.

Please review the UnidosUS and Affiliate Co-Branding Guidelines as well as the UnidosUS Affiliate Logo for reference and guidance.

Second-round drawing will take place on June 1st, 2018. Look at these excellent cobranding examples:

UnidosUS Unveils New Report on The Latino Experience in Higher Education

UnidosUS released a new report—“It Made the Sacrifices Worth It”: The Latino Experience in Higher Education. A live panel that consisted of UnidosUS policy experts and researchers from the Center for Community Capital at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill highlighted key insights from the report, which relied on in-depth interviews with a diverse set of thirty Latino college graduates from six U.S. cities. The new report uses a Latino lens to explore college access and affordability, as well as the implications of student debt on wealth-building.
