In 1979, what was FIU’s Caribbean and Latin American Studies Council became one of only eleven federally-funded Latin American Studies Centers in the country, under a Title VI grant awarded to FIU and UF. The name changed, and FIU’s Latin American and Caribbean Center (LACC) was born. Click through the link below to the Oct. 8, 1979 Miami Herald article, Middle Name Gets Boost at FIU, that quotes then-Director Mark Rosenberg on his vision for expansion of the newly created LACC.

Thank you to FIU President Rosenberg for the archive.
