AAPLAC

Strengthening study abroad, intercultural exchange & global learning in Latin America & the Caribbean

Introducing AAPLAC 2025 in Mexico City

The conference theme of AAPLAC 2025 is Arts, Education, and Activism: Transformation for Social Change. Our partnership with the Mexico City-based nonprofit ConArte provides an ideal opportunity to explore the power of creative pedagogies and social engagement to transform both students and local communities.

About AAPLAC

The wonderful thing about AAPLAC is that it is so inclusive. There is no “in” group—you feel welcome, with something important to say, right from the beginning.
