The LAII is sustained and enhanced by the research, teaching, and service of its affiliated faculty across campus. Over one hundred faculty contribute to these efforts and are affiliated with the institute.
The LAII draws together a wide and diverse community of affiliated faculty from across campus.
The LAII supports faculty development with funding for field research, conference travel, course development, and study abroad.
Following in the successful footsteps of UNM's Lightning Lounge series, the LAII hosts its own Lightning Lounge to feature Latin Americanist research across campus.
The LAII is set to commence coordinating working groups of faculty members to foster interdisciplinary research.
The University of New Mexico's Latin American library collections and resources are among the best in the country.
The LAII fosters research within and beyond UNM by providing digital resources to support Latin American scholarship.
Conducting research in Latin America or Iberia, participating in faculty exchange programs, or sending students to study abroad often requires the establishment of formal agreements between UNM and counterpart institutions abroad.
