The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) Regional Office (RO) was created in August 2002, becoming the first university-wide office outside the US to provide support for Harvard faculty and students. This successful vision of having a physical presence in Santiago has helped transform Harvard into a pioneering Global University, and it has served as a model for the creation of 21 international centers.
The purpose of the Regional Office in Santiago is to build capacity and collaborations by promoting a vibrant intellectual dialogue and synergetic initiatives between Harvard affiliates from all Schools and Centers around Harvard and Latin American partners by generating local multidisciplinary networks and alliances with Harvard alumni, leaders and strategic institutions of the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. The Office specializes in the design, management, and funding of institutional projects and events that engage Harvard faculty and students in experiential learning and collaborative approaches to solving difficult problems in the Region across many different fields.
