Under the leadership of the COIL Center the Latin America Academy (LAA) is developing course-based partnerships between SUNY campuses and universities in Latin America which are members of our growing Global Partner Network (GPN). The COIL Center is supporting selected faculty and their institutions to develop and pilot, equitable, team-taught courses which emphasize experiential and collaborative student learning. These may also serve as a basis for the creation of long-term sustainable international partnerships between the participant campuses. The ongoing offering of these courses will lead to students from SUNY and Latin America gaining meaningful experiences in cross-cultural international classrooms; thus contributing to greater understanding and cross-border dialogue and exchange between faculty, students, and staff at SUNY and peers in Latin America.
