The DRCLAS Regional Office (RO) exemplifies Harvard's Global Vision in the 21st Century: educating the citizens of the world; supporting Harvard professors and students to work in the broadest possible geographic contexts; disseminating new regional knowledge and innovative academic approaches in close collaboration with local institutions; and acting in the region as an intellectual lab convening point. The RO primarily serves the Southern Cone and Andean countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and Uruguay.
The Regional Office works closely with the Andes & Southern Cone Program at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies. This program works to increase the visibility of the countries of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela at Harvard University through diverse academic programmatic activities.
