The Center for Latin American Studies partners with other SDSU programs and centers, including the following:


Teaching and Community

Over a number of years CLAS has gathered a vast amount of indigenous resources to create educational materials that can be used in the community and/or classroom.

CLAS collaborates with SDSU's nationally recognized Language Acquisition Resource Center (LARC) to develop a number of innovative materials and projects, such as:

San Diego State University - University of Michigan Global Migration and Education Initiative (GMEI)

This collaborative project between San Diego State University (SDSU) and the University of Michigan (U-M) aims to provide innovative professional development opportunities for K-12 and Community College Educators in Michigan and California. The collaboration’s keystone project, the Global Migration and Inclusive Pedagogy workshop series, is an annual event that brings educators from Michigan and California to the US-Mexico border at the San Diego-Tijuana artery in order to better understand global migration flows and inclusive strategies for teaching in increasingly diverse classrooms.

This project is supported by a Title VI National Resource Center Grant from the US Department of Education. It is administered by the U-M Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the SDSU Center for Latin American Studies, the SDSU College of Education, the SDSU Office of International Affairs, and the SDSU Center for Equity, Bilingualism, Biliteracy, and Binational Education Research (CEBER). 

Please visit our PROJECT WEBSITE for more information on our upcoming activities and to access resources.
