Affiliate faculty members are those whose academic appointments reside entirely in other campus units and who devote at least 25 percent of their research, teaching and/or service to the study of Latin America and the Caribbean and/or Latina/os in the United States. The Affiliate Faculty chair and serve on MALAS thesis committees and on various fellowship and grant competition selection committees. They also initiate many of the Center’s research programs, events, and other activities. The courses taught by Affiliate Faculty (with 25 percent or more Latin American or Latino Studies content) are advertised in our Course Guide, and form the basis for the Center’s Minor, Undergraduate and Graduate Certificate, and MALAS programs. The dynamism of the Center and the quality of its programs depends greatly on the participation of its affiliates.
