Mission:

The Institute for the Study of Latin America and the Caribbean encourages and facilitates interdisciplinary inquiry in understanding Latin America and the Caribbean. It actively supports decolonizing the sciences and humanities through the promotion of diversity of its staff, events, invited speakers, and scholarly practice. Faculty and students are drawn from a number of social science, natural science, humanities, arts, and human service fields, including Engineering, Business, Public Health, Mental Health, and Education.
ISLAC is a uniquely placed member of the USF academic community. It is distinct from other units on campus and other centers around the state by facilitating multidisciplinary, applied scholarship; by furthering knowledge and understanding of countries and cultures in Latin America as well as those in the Caribbean; and by underscoring Tampa’s unique, historical relationships with the region.
