Latina/o and Latin American Student Networks at Teachers College


Affiliated faculty serve as sponsors for two active student groups at Teachers College, Association of Latin American Students (ALAS) and the Coalition of Latino/a Scholars (CLS).

Association of Latin American Students (ALAS)


ALAS strives to create an academic, cultural, and social network within the Latin American community at Teachers College. This organization has a listserv with more than 300 members, and each spring they host a graduate research conference that attracts approximately 100 scholars from across the United States.

Coalition of Latino/a Scholars (CLS)


CLS promotes Latino/a scholarship and fosters a supportive community for Latino/a graduate students. Over the years this organization has done outreach to prospective students to diversify TC’s funds of knowledge and held numerous events to enrich TC with Latino/a culture and traditions and promote the advancement of the Latino/a effort.
