Center for Latin American, Caribbean & Latino Studies
The Center for Latin American, Caribbean & Latino Studies (CLACLS) promotes the study and understanding of Latin American and Caribbean cultures and the communities established in the United States, with a special focus on New York City, by peoples from this vast and extraordinarily diverse region.
CLACLS researches and publishes innovative data-based studies focused upon New York City’s and the nation’s Latino communities, such as CLACLS' flagship Latino Data Project. The Latino Data Project provides the public with insights on various aspects of the New York City Latino experience.
The center has a strong commitment to help advance the study of Latin America, the Caribbean, and Latinos in the U.S. in the Graduate Center's doctoral programs, and to provide opportunities for Latino students at the Ph.D. level.
