The mission of the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is to serve, facilitate, and stimulate the teaching, research, and intellectual interests of OSU faculty and students in all matters dealing with Latin America. In addition, the Center carries out meaningful outreach programs to enhance the public’s knowledge and understanding of the region’s politics, business, economics, culture, literature, and arts. CLAS accomplishes its mission by fostering high-quality research by faculty members and students, by increasing the Latin American-content course offerings, by supporting teachers from Ohio and beyond on their endeavors connected to the area, and by facilitating study abroad and exchange programs.
