Latin@ home

Bienvenidos - Welcome 

Ferris State University has a long history of connecting with communities in Michigan. The Center for Latin@ Studies (CLS) aims to connect Ferris and Latin@ communities in the Midwest. It works to increase access to higher education, promote intercultural exchange, and provide opportunities for meaningful partnerships between Ferris State University and organizations affiliated with Latin@[1] communities. The theme of our work is to create an Intercambio Cultural, a space of cultural exchange between Latin@ and non-Latin@s that links faculty, students, and community institutions. The Center for Latin@ Studies will accomplish this by establishing the following connections:
