The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee develops, supports and promotes teaching, research and outreach about Latin America and the Caribbean.

Services and resources are available to UWM faculty, staff and students; K-12 teachers and post-secondary educators; professional groups; and the community. CLACS seeks to promote informed, culturally sensitive perspectives for Wisconsin, the upper Midwest and the United States.

The UWM Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) recently was awarded 2014-18 Title VI National Resource Center (NRC) and Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships (FLAS) funding by the U.S. Department of Education. CLACS is jointly funded in a consortium with the UW-Madison Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies Program.
