CLAS fosters and supports new ideas and research by bringing together academics, artists and community members from Latin America and the Caribbean, the United States, and the world to engage with the Berkeley campus and larger Bay Area community.

We host free events for the Berkeley community and broader public, including lectures, seminars, concerts, exhibitions, film screenings, and more.
