Union Latino Americana (ULA) was the short existing Pan American Governing body of Hispanic fraternities created in the early 20th century. The ULA was established in 1932, during a convention of Phi Iota Alpha in the City of New York.[1]

The ULA organized Latin America into 22 zones. Each of the 21 Latin American countries constituted a zone. The 22nd zone was represented by the United States. The ULA, was a framework for the implementation of Pan-American ideology. All the zones were bonded by the same constitution and internal rules and regulations. On September 30, 1934 Sigma Delta Alpha, a fraternity established on the island of Puerto Rico joined the Union. It was renamed Phi Sigma Alpha. By 1937, the ULA had several well-established and functional zones including:


In September 1939, the Phi Sigma Alpha zone decided to separate from the ULA and eventually, to form Phi Sigma Alpha Fraternity of Puerto Rico.[3] The ULA dissolved shortly after.
