K-12 Educators & Post-Secondary Outreach

LACS is committed to spreading awareness and knowledge of topics related to Latin American and the Caribbean through a variety of outreach efforts that bring resources to K-12 institutions and minority-serving post-secondary institutions.

Through our LACS outreach initiatives and through collaborations with the School of Education, the Department of Music Education, and other Area Studies Centers at the International Institute, LACS works to incorporate exciting content into curriculum in Michigan school districts. We also partner with the Midwest Institute for International/Intercultural Education (MIIIE), a consortium of two-year colleges primarily located in the Midwest region to support curriculum and professional development for teachers across the country. In collaboration with other Area Studies Centers at the International Institute, LACS is proud to have developed a partnership with the Colleges of Education, Humanities, and Social Sciences at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras, a major public research university and Minority Serving Institution (MSI) for the purposes of K-16 outreach.
