Public Engagement

CLACS is designated by the U.S. Department of Education as a Title VI National Resource Center for Latin American Language and Area Studies. As such, CLACS provides extensive resources and services for K-16 educators-locally, regionally and nationally-incorporating Latin America and the Caribbean in their teaching.

In addition to educational outreach, CLACS links campus and community through its public programming, including the annual spring Latin American Film Series. CLACS is jointly funded with the Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies Program (LACIS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison which also offers diverse outreach programming.
