The purpose of SALSA is to promote Hispanic awareness throughout campus and the surrounding community. SALSA proudly represents a variety of different cultures and different backgrounds. We encourage unity between all ethnicities, especially Hispanics. At ECU we recognize both the need for unity among Hispanic students and a strong relationship among our community. We acknowledge the value of diversity and distinctiveness of the Latino/Hispanic community and recognize both the need for unity among Latino/Hispanic students and a strong relationship among all undergraduates, graduates, faculty, staff, and community.
Anybody can join SALSA. Stay updated through the social media networks, come out to the programs and meetings, and stay involved. We meet in Bate 1023 on Thursday from 6-7pm. We hope to see you there!

Dr. Holly Mathews and Dr. Laura Mazow were recognized for their outstanding teaching methods by students during the Spring 2015 semester from the College STAR.
Student response for Dr. Mathews:
"She gives feedback and forces her students to expand their mind and explore alternate theories or explanations. She wants her students to discuss topics in class instead of just listening to her talk the entire time."
Student response for Dr. Mazow:
"We have a small class which allows many opportunities for a lot of class discussion...She always provides feedback and answers to our journal entries and is always available when we need help."
Congratulations to them both!
