The Center for Latino and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) is an academic, research, and outreach center that serves as a home for the interdisciplinary study of Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Latinx experience in the United States. The CLLAS supports faculty and student research and scholarship, administers a minor in Latino and Latin American Studies and a graduate concentration in Latin American Studies, and organizes academic and cultural programming as well as campus and community outreach activities. The CLLAS also sponsors the NIU Latinx Oral History Project, which documents the lives and experiences of Latinxs in the Midwest.
