The Institute of Latin American Studies Student Association (ILASSA) is a student organization for graduate students in the Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS) program at the University of Texas at Austin. ILASSA’s purpose is to bring graduate students together, encourage more active student participation in institute and campus affairs concerning Latin America and Latin American Studies, and provide a student voice for the direction of the LLILAS program.  ILASSA organizes orientation activities for prospective and incoming students, runs the annual ILASSA academic conference, and sends representatives to the Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) and other campus activities.
