Title: Announcing the Establishment of the Americas Institute

Date Published: August 17, 2020

CLAS is delighted to share that President DeGioia announced the establishment of the Georgetown University Americas Institute. The Americas Institute is the culmination of many years of work by colleagues across the University, and it represents a transformational moment for Georgetown’s engagement with Latin America. Indeed, this establishes Latin America as the first (and for the moment, only) university-wide regional platform; others hope to follow suit, but Latin America is the pioneer, and we at CLAS could not be more happy. We are deeply grateful for the generosity of Rolando (C’68) and Monica Gonzalez-Bunster for the visionary gift that is allowing us to launch the Americas Institute.
