The Neotropical Ecology Institute is a network of faculty, staff and students at Tulane who share a common interest in the Latin American tropical environment. This is a region of enormous biological diversity and natural resources which faces daunting threats and challenges from rapid economic development, lack of resources, poor government policies, and rapid population growth. We aim to help each other generate knowledge to better understand and solve critical environmental problems in Latin America and the Caribbean; we do this through supporting interdisciplinary teaching and education, and promoting greater interdisciplinary communication, sharing of research findings and collaboration in research.

Teaching Cuban Culture & Society: A K-12 Summer Educator Institute in Cuba

View Full Event Description

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute at Tulane University are proud to announce a two-week summer educator institute exploring the geography, culture and history of Cuba. For an educator, Cuba is rich with lessons to bring into the classroom. This program highlights the important historical and cultural connections between the United States and Cuba. Participants will explore key sites and meet local experts and artists who will provide unique insight for educators who teach such subjects as U.S./Latin American Relations, World Geography, World History, and Spanish among others. Come and visit the site of the historic Bay of Pigs, explore Milton Hershey’s sugar plantation and hear firsthand about the Cuban national literacy campaign from the teachers themselves.
