About the organizer

The University of Texas at Austin has 100-year history of education and research throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. As a result, the University has a vast array of resources that can be utilized to assist in understanding and addressing issues of importance to the region. These internal assets are force-multiplied by the fact that many of our graduating students have returned to their home countries, achieved prominence in government, industry and academia, and can be easily engaged in cooperative discussions and projects. While imbedded in the Jackson School of Geosciences, the Latin America and Caribbean Energy and Environmental Program pursues an interdisciplinary collaborative approach among the Jackson School of Geosciences, Cockrell School of Engineering, LBJ School of Public Affairs, McCombs School of Business, Texas School of Law, the College of Liberal Arts and the Energy Institute; and acts as an enabler by identifying and facilitating research and academic opportunities among the program’s stakeholders and UT’s faculty, researchers and students.
