The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) at the University of Michigan stimulates and supports regionally focused academic and curricular endeavors. The center is a nexus for faculty members and students from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives who share a common interest in Latin America and the Caribbean. LACS also fosters engagement and exchange between the people of Michigan and the Latin American and Caribbean scholars, activists, and artists who make up our global community.

The Brazil Initiative at LACS is a university-wide initiative to promote research, teaching, and student and faculty exchange with the goal of fomenting and enhancing collaborations with Brazilian institutions. Seed funding is provided to U-M faculty members to build new or existing collaboration with Brazilian colleagues. The Initiative was created in 2012 as a result of a visit to Brazil by a U-M official delegation led by former President Mary Sue Coleman.
