Institute for Latin American and Iberian Studies at Columbia University

For more than 35 years the Institute of Latin American and Iberian Studies (ILAIS) has supported scholarship and professional achievement in the field of Latin American studies. When it was founded in 1962 as one of several regionally-focused centers at Columbia, it was responding to a need to provide the nation with scholars and professionals knowledgeable in what were to most Americans relatively unknown areas of the world. In recent years, as the field as expanded, ILAIS has become a center where students and faculty, often with extensive exposure to the region, come together to exchange ideas and information with a wide range of scholars, businesspeople, government officials, and artists from Latin America and Iberia.
