The CLACS Andean Initiative, was launched in 2009 as a resource to promote regional training and outreach related to the peoples, countries, and languages of the Andean region. The Initiative is grounded in the CLACS commitment to Quechua language training, the depth of expertise on the region among CLACS Faculty at NYU, the large number of Andeanists at other NYC-area institutions, as well as the presence of vibrant Andean communities around the city. The Initiative brings together faculty, students, research, for colloquia, conferences, and other events.
