Latin America Connections

The Latino Migration Project trains undergraduate and graduate students to understand the contemporary and historical complexities of migration through programs that involve academic study, research, service-learning and travel. For nearly a decade, the LMP has fostered bi-national relationships with migrant communities, secondary schools, and foundations across North Carolina and in Mexico and Latin America, resulting in affordable and transformative educational programs.
