The mission of the Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies Program as both a Title VI Resource Center*, and as an academic program is:
- To train Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian specialists for academic, government, and private sector work.
- To support the intellectual development and intercultural knowledge of students and faculty interested in the region.
- To serve as a local, regional, and national resource center that provides outreach, support, and information to other university units, K-12 educators, government, community, and business constituencies.
*LACIS is funded in part by a Title VI Resource grant through the U.S. Department of Education’s International Foreign Language Education (IFLE) program.
