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.

Established in 1965, CLACS is designated a National Resource Center for Language and Area Studies by the U.S. Department of Education, jointly with the Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies Program at UW-Madison.
