El Centro Chicano y Latino is fortunate to have committed community members serving on El Guiding Concilio, the center's advisory board. Concilio members represent different constituencies of Stanford's Chicano/Latino community. There are 6 elected student representatives (3 undergraduate and 3 graduate); 2 elected staff members; 2 elected alumni representatives; and one faculty member. The director, associate director, and graduate programs developer of the center serve as ex-officio members.
The Guiding Concilio meets bi-monthly to discuss short- and long-term goals for the center, resource allocation and expansion, and is available to students to address issues facing the community.
