Latin America

Georgetown has deep and longstanding ties to Latin America through its research, teaching, and outreach activities.

The university's Center for Latin American Studies in the School of Foreign Service is a leader in the study of the region. The Latin America Leadership Program (LALP) and the Center for the Advancement of the Rule of Law in the Americas (CAROLA) at the Law Center are among the other hubs of Latin America-related activity on campus. Georgetown's Latin American Board supports the university's engagement in the region. Georgetown's Washington, D.C., location provides proximity to institutions engaged around the future of Latin America, including the Organization of American States and the Inter-American Development Bank. The university is also home to a vibrant Latin American community of students, faculty, and staff, and it hosts activities and events dedicated to Latin American culture. For more detailed information on Georgetown's activities in the region, visit the Georgetown and Latin America website.
