“The Master’s Program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies has significantly influenced my career in International Education. The knowledge gained through my studies is used daily in advising both incoming and outbound university students as well as in collaborating with faculty on program development in Latin America and other developing regions. In providing opportunities for study and research abroad, the LAS program enabled me to experience first-hand the transformative nature of international education. I am deeply gratified to participate in making this a reality for current KU students.”
