The program in Latin American and Iberian Studies draws on faculty members all across campus. Faculty affiliates are based in their home departments and contribute to the Latin American and Iberian Studies program by offering courses at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels, mentoring students, and participating in program activities. You can search the program website for individual faculty members under Faculty – Alphabetical. Their individual listings are linked to their departments’ or their own websites. 

Professional researcher affiliates are included under the Faculty – Alphabetical and Faculty-Fields. Although they do not offer courses on a regular basis, they are valuable participants in the program with expertise in Latin American and Latinx issues.
