Support the Department of  Latino and Latin American Studies

Support the Department of Latino and Latin American Studies

The Office of Latino/Latin American Studies of the Great Plains—OLLAS (pronounced "oy-yas")—at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) was established in 2003 with the support of UNO faculty, staff, and students as well as the metropolitan community. OLLAS has helped fill a void in the Nebraska and Great Plains region's infrastructure dedicated to the productive incorporation of the new and growing Latino population into the political, economic, and social life of the region. The office is dedicated to developing our institutional capacities and academic initiatives aimed at improving our understanding of Latino/Latin American issues and populations within and across borders.
