The search for knowledge knows no boundaries. In the quest for answers to pressing problems and questions within our own society, researchers must reach beyond borders, where they can discover universal truths and trends that reflect the human experience, regardless of geographic location.
Many professors across a variety of disciplines at Texas State have focused their scholarly efforts on Latin America, an area rich with history and a diversity of cultures. Their findings benefit far more than their limitless curiosity; their quest for knowledge is an inspiration to their students, a source of new material for their fellow academicians, and an opportunity for intellectual growth for those who take an interest in the connection between people and ideas around the globe.
Through their investigation into the world next door, these professors bring a wealth of information to their classrooms and create an atmosphere of collaboration and shared discovery that spurs the entire campus to continue its tradition of research excellence.
