Through our many centers, American University aims to strengthen our culture of respect and integrity, recognize the great work of our community members, and be a model for inclusion and innovation.
- Center for Latin American & Latino Studies
Established in January 2010, the center is a campus-wide initiative advancing and disseminating state-of-the-art research. Our faculty affiliates and partners are at the forefront of efforts to understand economic development, democratic governance, cultural diversity and change, peace and diplomacy, health, education and environmental well-being. CLALS generates high quality, timely analysis on these and other issues in partnership with researchers and practitioners from AU and beyond.
