Mission Statement

The mission of Gamma Zeta Alpha Fraternity, Inc., a non-profit organization built on the foundation of respect and cultural, is to establish and promote a nurturing environment at the university level and beyond, through academic excellence, community service, and the celebration of the diverse Latina/o Culture. One of the most important aspects of our latina/o interest organization is the manner in which we portray our diversity to the public. All members of this organization strongly abide by these values in their everyday lives and demonstrate this strength through performing a number of community building activities.

Being a part of our family is a life-long commitment. Graduating from college is, by no means, the end of our involvement with this organization. Rather, it marks the entrance into a new phase of our family and our lives as we enter the professional world and begin to start our careers. As an organization, Raza Unida believes producing college graduates is the most influential manner in which to help out Latino community.
