Why You Should Support CLACS

  • To increase public knowledge about Latin American and Caribbean-related issues in New York City and beyond
    Each academic year, we host over 100 free, public events, making top research more accessible and connecting CLACS to the local community. We are currently developing podcasts and online resources to expand our reach well beyond the limits of NYC area. Your support will enable the continuation of colloquium series, film screenings, lectures, Quechua conversation nights, presentations on recent research, annual newsletter publication, extensive web resource development, K-12 outreach programs, and much more.
  • To advance research in and about the region
    Each summer, graduate students and affiliated faculty apply to CLACS for research grants which support trips to the field. By giving to CLACS, you can help more scholars pursue their research interests abroad, and to advance their academic and professional careers.
  • To support our prestigious MA programs, which have helped to shape the futures of hundreds of graduates 
    With multiple joint degree programs and access to university-wide classes, we offer our students the option to create an interdisciplinary degree that fits their specific interests, welcoming students from around the world to realize their intellectual and creative potential. You might consider endowing an innovative course, endowing a named annual lecture, funding a visiting professorship for scholars from the region, or sponsoring fellowships for students who show exceptional promise.
  • To enrich your own understanding of the region through a stronger relationship with the Center
