History

The Executive Committee of the Stone Center adopted this mission statement in April 1998:

  • The Center comprises a diverse group of scholars representing many disciplines and points of view drawn together by our common interest in Latin America.
  • The Center’s principal purpose is to promote, sustain, and encourage research and teaching of Latin American Studies primarily at Tulane University.

  • The Center fosters a community of scholars representing a broad spectrum of ideas, interests, disciplines.
  • The Center has done much to encourage an interdisciplinary approach to Latin American Studies, and provides a model of a true interdisciplinarian spirit.
  • The Center is an integral part of the International Latin American Studies community.
  • The Center educates the university community about the multicultural and multi-faceted importance of Latin America and makes this importance felt in the community at large.
  • The Center initiates or encourages new projects involving Latin America.
