The Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies

The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies brings together members of our Duke, local and worldwide communities in order to promote new ideas, research, language training and artistic representations about Latin America and the Caribbean.

Through innovative coursework, academic conferences, global exchanges, outreach to local schools, and exposure to thought leaders from across the Americas, we prepare future leaders who may work in fields related to Latin America and the Caribbean in education, business, arts, government and many other careers.
