Stone Center Visitor Speakers Compliment Local Hispanic Heritage Month Programming

December 1st, 2016

LARC had a busy fall managing our Visitor Speaker Bureau. This service gets experts in a variety of fields into the classroom so students can hear firsthand about cutting edge research and what Latin America is really like. This semester, visitors from LARC spoke in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms at public and private schools throughout New Orleans and also visited several federal agencies to speak to employees.

Speakers included faculty and graduate students across disciplines. Learn more about this semester‘€™s visitors and what they discussed during their visits:

If you are interested in scheduling a visitor for your classroom in the future, visit the VSB website and be sure to give us three weeks‘€™ notice to find someone whose schedule fits your needs!
