Program Administration and Committees

The program is administered jointly by Center for African Studies and the Center for Latin American Studies. Both are internationally recognized centers of excellence in area studies and are federally funded Title VI centers. The directors for the Center for Latin American Studies and African Studies sit on the steering committee of the program. The steering curriculum and management committees make key decisions about the management of the program:

1. Steering Committee
This is composed of faculty members from across seven colleges and academic units. The steering committee meets once or twice a semester and acts as the overall advisory board for the program.
