Your gift helps inspire new approaches and understandings to the study of Latin America and the Caribbean. It supports UNC students’ travel to learn a new language, conduct research, or participate in an internship opportunity. It brings to campus Latin Americanist scholars, leaders, and innovative thinkers. It makes possible outreach services to North Carolina K-12 classrooms and library collections available to the community-at-large.

We are deeply grateful to all our friends and donors for their financial support.
