With offices in Santiago, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Mexico City, and Cambridge, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) offers programs covering the entire region.
Andes & Southern Cone
The Andes & Southern Cone Program and the Regional Office in Chile work to increase the visibility of the countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela at Harvard through diverse academic programmatic activities and in collaboration with student organizations.
The Brazil Studies Program in Cambridge and Office in São Paulo expand research and teaching opportunities for Harvard faculty and students across the University. The initiatives and approach are collaborative in nature, seeking to connect leading thinkers at Harvard with their counterparts in Brazil.
The Cuba Studies Program departs from the basic premises that restoring and enhancing cooperation between the US and Cuban academic communities can play a significant role in promoting peaceful changes within and between our two countries; and, strengthening and establishing institutional ties promotes interaction and collaboration among current and future intellectual and opinion leaders and thus catalyzes positive changes in Cuban and US perspectives and government policies.
