Join Tulane, Vanderbilt, and UGA in Panama for the final installment of our “Central America: People and the Environment” professional development summer series for educators! Hear from local experts as we deepen our understanding of the historic connections between the US and Central America through the Panama Canal, as well as local histories, culture, and the ecological systems on which diverse Panamanian communities depend. Participants will also work with Tulane University curriculum specialist Brooke Grant to develop materials and strategies for classroom incorporation of content.


The application process for this program is competitive as capacity is limited.


Sponsored by Vanderbilt University's Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies, Tulane University's Stone Center for Latin American Studies, and University of Georgia's Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, with support from Title VI funding through the US Department of Education. Learn More and Apply Now
