The Latin American Initiative

For those of us who live in Texas the border with our neighbors to the south is merely a thin ribbon of river. Eighty years ago farsighted leaders at the University of Texas recognized that teaching and research on Latin America would greatly benefit this state because of its Hispanic heritage. They took the words of Ashbel Smith, first president of the UT Board of Regents, to heart: “It belongs to Texas by right of our geographical position to furnish all this instruction to our neighbors on the other side of the Rio Grande.” Their extraordinary vision is now the premier Latin American studies program in the world. The articles in this DISCOVERY describe the University’s exemplary Latin American Initiative.
