Latin American Studies Faculty + Staff

The people make the program

What happens when you gather brilliant and diverse faculty representing multiple academic departments and assemble them all to instruct under the umbrella of Latin American Studies?

Evidently magic happens.

What is the overwhelming response from Latin American Studies alumni when asked what the best thing about LAS at UW-Eau Claire? It's simple — the faculty make the program. From the initial discussions about why this program might be right for a student, through degree planning, leading intercultural immersion programs, and mentoring collaborative research, the talented and expert faculty give the LAS courses the credibility that has helped it stand out in the region.

The best thing about the program is the deep cultural learning gained from the diverse professors. With their wide range of backgrounds, they each bring something additional to the classes in their own ways.
