Ethnicity & Culture
Welcome to The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute (LACSI) at The University of Georgia! LACSI brings Latin American and Caribbean culture to the UGA campus by sponsoring educational activities, artistic performances, interdisciplinary research, teaching, and public service projects, in coordination with Latin Americanists from UGA, other Universities, the community at large, and abroad.
ISL is one unit with the Department of Intercultural Affairs at UGA, and our mission statement is "to provide an environment that appreciates our interdependent global society. It will do so by creating a welcoming space that provides opportunities for the interaction of students from the USA and other nations. Working together with students, ISL staff will provide services for, awareness of, and education about the worldwide social and cultural issues facing UGA students."
The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination.
