Center for Latino and Latin American Studies


The Center for Latino and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) combines an interdisciplinary academic program with a community partnership initiative to engage CWU and the surrounding community in an intensive study of Latino and Latin American peoples and cultures.

Emphasizing student success, study abroad, and community-based research, the LLAS minor fuses the usually separate fields of Latino Studies and Latin American Studies and allows students to develop a course of study based on their individual interests and needs. The academic program is enhanced by our community partnership initiative and annual series of sponsored cultural events to solidify and expand the relationship between CWU and the surrounding community, especially Washington State’s booming Latino populations.

Ultimately, the Center seeks to create a physical and intellectual space within which both University and community members can find mutual understanding, intellectual stimulation, and personal and professional enrichment.

For our current students, we have a variety of summer classes offered online! All of these can fulfill LLAS minor requirements and more.

The Center for Latino and Latin American Studies now happily accepts donations
