Americas Conference: About the Americas Council

The Americas Council provides an annual conference for presenters and participants to explore critical socio-cultural, political, economic, global, regional and national issues including the challenges and opportunities facing Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada. 

While the focus of this conference is primarily for university/college faculty members, the Americas Council also encourages graduate and undergraduate students to participate. The conference typically includes at least two graduate and two undergraduate panels.

"The purpose of the Americas Council is to provide a venue in which faculty from the University System of Georgia can engage and share their interest and expertise regarding The USA, Latin America and Canada."
—Dr. José de Arimatéia da Cruz, Chairperson
