Supporting LACS and the Brazil Initiatives

LACS' contribution to the University of Michigan community goes well beyond degrees and certificates conferred. We sponsor student groups, host lectures, support visiting scholars and post docs, and invite and provide a venue for artists and performers. We lobby for the hiring across campus of faculty with a scholarly interest in Latin America and the Caribbean, and at the same time encourage departments and schools to design and schedule courses with a strong focus on our region.

If you are considering a gift to LACS and/or the Brazil Initiative at LACS, we want you to know that your gift will help us guarantee that U-M students will have an opportunity, in perpetuity, to study the cultures, histories, languages, and peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean and contribute to scholarship and involvement in the region.

We gratefully acknowledge the generous support we receive from LACS alumni and friends. It is through your donations that we maintain a center of excellence and continue funding students’ exploration of this interesting and dynamic world region.
