Christian Latino
Doctoral Intern, AB540 and Undocumented Students Emphasis 
Office hours: Tuesdays 12:30pm-1:30pm and by appointment
calatino@ucdavis.edu

Christian Latino has always had an interest in learning about other cultures. This interest eventually took him to Mexico, where he lived for three years doing community organization work with the Peace Corps. In his time there, Christian lived in large cities and small ranchitos, giving him the opportunity to form close relationships with many people, including some who had been undocumented in the United States. This awoke in Christian the wish to continue to work with this population because of the unique blend of cultural, familial, economic, and political factors that these individuals must bravely navigate. He believes that all individuals are capable of facing the challenges in front of them, and works with students to get in touch with the strengths they already possess to overcome their obstacles.

Fun Fact: Christian loves reading.
