The Latino and Latin American Studies program from the University of Nebraska Omaha is an interdisciplinary program that seeks to combine academic excellence with real-world engagement in order to enhance our understanding of Latino and Latin American peoples and critical issues.


Organization's Primary Goals, Major Programs or Services

The main goals of the Latino and Latin American Studies program at the University of Nebraska Omaha are to:

  • develop policy-oriented and community-relevant research,
  • create learning opportunities for students and communities beyond the classroom and across borders and
  • establish strategic and egalitarian community partnerships to strengthen our capacity to address local and global concerns.

In accomplishing these goals, we seek to assist Nebraska and the Great Plains region, as well as the growing Latino population, in reaching a shared prosperous present and future in a context of cultural understanding, respect of differences, and promotion of human rights.
