The Center for Latin American Studies provides opportunities for K-14 educators to deepen their knowledge about Latin America and infuse area studies into their curriculum through our events and workshops. CLAS also works with the Office of Resources for International and Area Studies (ORIAS) to create workshops with a global focus. Videos from many of our workshops are archived for those who were unable to attend.
