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.
In the past, the Latin American Studies Center has partnered closely with two outreach programs. The Langley Park Project worked to improve communities with large immigrant populations. The Pedestrian Safety Campaign worked to increase awareness of pedestrian safety precautions amongst Latino communities. Collaborating with these efforts helped LASC to share its resources with the greater Washington DC community.
