Latin American, Latino/a
and Caribbean Studies at Miami University
Support the LAS Program
The Latin American, Latino/a, and Caribbean Studies (LAS) Program at Miami University is committed to helping students gain a better understanding of the historical, cultural, economic, and political experiences, and environmental challenges, of Latin American and Caribbean people. The LAS Program provides educational enrichment to a wide range of students. Opportunities include the LAS Major, Minor, Study Abroad Workshops, Thematic Sequences, and Miami Plan Foundation courses. LAS is committed to providing our students with the necessary tools and experiences to be successful in their careers and as global citizens.
Through the generosity of donors to the LAS Program, we can continue to expand opportunities for Miami students to learn about and experience Latin America, the Caribbean, and Latino/a issues in the U.S. Please consider how valuable a resource the LAS Program is to Miami University students and help us continue these efforts with a gift.
There are several ways you can help us.
These gifts allow us to apply your gift to the area of greatest need.
- Sponsor Symposia/Lecture Series on issues and scholarship in LAS
- Assistance to students who struggle to purchase textbooks for classes
- Scholarships to our very best students
- Grants to offset travel expenses for students to study in Latin America and the Caribbean
- A classroom enrichment fund to enhance the LAS resource library
