Outreach programs draw upon the strength of the UM community to improve the lives of area residents. Participating in these programs allow students, faculty, and staff to share their expertise and energy within local communities.
The Latin American Studies Center partners closely with two outreach programs. The Langley Park Project works to improve communities with large immigrant populations. The Pedestrian Safety Campaign works to increase awareness of pedestrian safety precautions amongst Latino communities. Collaborating with these efforts helps the LASC to share its resources with the greater D.C. community.
