LACC has been an important part of FIU for over 35 years. Much trailblazing activity and scholarship has taken place under its leaders, faculty, international partners, staff and, principally, its students. We’ll be sharing some interesting facts and highlights over the next few months. Click above to see the first.
LACC’s Title VI support of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s Satellite Partners Program has helped make it possible for the K-12 program to go international.
LACC is proud to kick off its 2014 Haitian Summer Institute and welcome twenty-one students from across the US and Germany to FIU for the launch of the 17th year of LACC's flagship program. The 2014 cohort includes graduate students, K-12 educators and professionals with diverse interests in Haiti, its language, culture and society. Participants complete four weeks of intensive Haitian Creole language training in Miami and the program culminates with a two-week study abroad in Haiti.
