The international programs at Penn State Greater Allegheny during the 2008-2009 academic year will have a geographic and a thematic focus. We invite students, faculty, staff and the community to experience Latin America and the Caribbean as we study the region and issues related to food security.

The table below shows the countries we are studying, organized by region. Countries with an asterisk are members of OAS (**By resolution of the Eighth Meeting of Consultation of Ministers of Foreign Affairs [1962] the current Government of Cuba is excluded from participation in the OAS).
