Welcome to the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS) at Princeton University. PLAS is one the nation's first centers dedicated exclusively to Latin American area studies with more than fifty faculty members in more than twenty academic departments and schools. The program's core mission is to increase knowledge of the histories, cultures, economies, and environments of Latin America, including Brazil and the Caribbean, and to foster cooperation and understanding across the Americas. PLAS achieves this by bringing Latin American scholars, artists, politicians, and scientists to campus, and providing support for collaborative research, community service, and cultural exchanges in the region.
