Culture Trunks

One of the most exciting resources for educators are the Center's revamped culture trunks. Each of CLACS's 10 trunks includes a collection of musical instruments, videos, books, maps, and country-specific information and artifacts for a given country, region, or topic. Trunks can be used as learning tools or for displays during international fairs. Trunks are available for check-out and are mailed directly to your school with free shipping and handling.

Trunks may be reserved in advance by contacting the Center and can be checked-out for a period of two weeks, which includes the time required for shipping. The Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies will cover all shipping costs. Trunks are sent via FedEx.

To request a trunk, please review the instructions and complete an online Materials Request Form.  The following trunks are currently available to educators:
