Welcome to Brazil Nuts!

Brazil Nuts is an active student organization at the University of Pittsburgh. Since its creation in 1998, the group's primary goal has been to expose students to Brazilian culture and the Portuguese language, creating environments for the students to practice their Portuguese outside of the classroom and to interact within the Brazilian community.

The club's activities provide students with unique opportunities to learn more about Brazil and its people. Weekly dance classes are offered where participants can enjoy themselves while learning about axé, samba and other forms of Brazilian dance, while movie nights provide viewers with a chance to witness the art of Brazilian cinema. The club also offers Bate-Papo, a weekly conversation table where students of all levels can practice Portuguese with peers and native Portuguese speakers.

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in the Portuguese language and learning about the cultures where Portuguese is spoken. Take a look at our site, learn about some of our activities and find out about other events occuring in the Pittsburgh area!

Visit the Brazil Nuts Facebook:


Our purpose at Pitt Spanish Club is to immerse students in the culture and language  of Spanish-speaking countries. We collaborate with the University of Pittsburgh Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) and other organizations to host many events.

Pitt now offering a postdoctoral fellowship starting August 2019!

The University Center for International Studies at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship (with the possibility of renewal for a second year) centered on Latinx studies, beginning August 2019. The successful applicant will be housed in one of three disciplinary departments/programs within the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences: the History Department, the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program, or the Urban Studies Program. We welcome applicants whose research (and proposed teaching) underscores the recognition of the vital importance of the Latinx experience in the United States (and the gap which remains in the scholarship documenting and analyzing it); we also welcome applicants whose work views that experience through intersectional and interdisciplinary frames. We are particularly interested in scholars whose work engages with Latinx history, gender and sexuality, or urban communities.

*Applicants must have satisfactorily completed all requirements for the PhD degree, including any oral defense, by May 1, 2019. Individuals who completed all such requirements before May 1, 2016, are ineligible.

Operation Walk Pittsburgh

Spanish Translators Needed! 

Operation Walk Pittsburgh is a private, not-for-profit, volunteer medical services organization which provides free surgical care for patients that have no access to life-improving care for arthritis or other debilitating bone and joint conditions in Latin American countries. Operation Walk also educates in-country orthopedic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals on the most advanced treatments and surgical techniques for diseases of the hip and knee joints. This is done in conjunction with surgeries to help create a lasting contribution to patient care in developing countries. 

The Operation Walk Pittsburgh chapter was started by Dr. Tony DiGioia, Medical Director of the Bone and Joint Center at Magee-Womens Hospital, in 2009 as an initiative of the AMD3 Foundation. To date, Operation Walk Pittsburgh has completed nine successful, international missions to Guatemala, Panama, Honduras and Cuba and given the gift of mobility back to nearly 500 patients in need. The team will return to Antigua, Guatemala in October of 2019 to mark its 10th mission and 10th anniversary. Each year, a team of surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, other healthcare professionals, translators and general volunteers is recruited for Operation Walk’s volunteer travel team. 

We are currently accepting applications for our 2019 mission and are in need of Spanish translators. Spanish bilingual speakers are prefered but applicants processing advanced Spanish will also be considered. Professional experience in healthcare is also a plus, but not required. Applicants must be available to travel September 28 - October 5th, 2019 and must agree to a modest fundraising commitment. If you’d like to learn more or are interested in applying to our travel team, please visit You can also email Nick with general questions.

News about Dr. Gina Garcia, CLAS -UCIS faculty
Article:  What It Means, Politically, to Serve Hispanics b
y Peter Monaghan at The Chronicle of Higher Education 

CLAS -UCIS Faculty, Dr. Gina Garcia was quoted in this article. "Hispanic-serving institution" has been a federal designation since 1992 for colleges with Latinx undergraduate enrollments of at least 25 percent. In 2015, Garcia writes, 472 two- or four-year degree-granting institutions met that mark, while 323 others were approaching it. That same year, HSIs enrolled 64 percent of the country’s three million Latinx undergraduates, and Latinx students made up 18.5 percent of total undergraduate enrollment.

Council Hemispheric Affairs

Founded in 1975, the Council on Hemispheric Affairs (COHA), a nonprofit, tax-exempt independent research and information organization, was established to promote the common interests of the hemisphere, raise the visibility of regional affairs and increase the importance of the inter-American relationship, as well as encourage the formulation of rational and constructive U.S. policies towards Latin America. In 1982, COHA’s board of trustees voted to expand its mandate to include monitoring Canadian/Latin American relations.

Since its inception, COHA has been one of the most active and broadest-based U.S. private bodies dealing with the entire spectrum of political, economic and diplomatic issues, as well as responding to the economic and political challenges confronting the nations of this hemisphere. From its beginnings, COHA’s board consisted of the leadership of some of this country’s most important trade unions, professional organizations and religious groups, as well as distinguished civic and academic figures, who joined together to advance their common belief in support of representative government and pluralistic institutions throughout the hemisphere.

Global Links

Global Links is a medical relief and development organization dedicated to promoting environmental stewardship and improving health in resource-poor communities, primarily in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our two-fold mission provides hospitals with a socially and environmentally beneficial alternative to sending hundreds of tons of still-useful surplus materials to landfills.

Hospitals and clinics in under-served communities often lack the supplies and equipment necessary to provide even basic care to their patients, resulting in needless suffering and deaths. At the same time, the US healthcare industry generates a staggering amount of medical surplus which, without intervention, is destined to pile up in our landfills.

Global Links' innovative model of recovery and reuse connects these two social problems in a way that helps to solve both, creating a "virtuous circle" that converts an environmental burden to a life-saving purpose. For information about events and programs visit:

The Economic Commission for Latin America CEPAL (news)

The Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLA) -the Spanish acronym is CEPAL- was established by Economic and Social Council resolution 106(VI) of 25 February 1948 and began to function that same year. The scope of the Commission's work was later broadened to include the countries of the Caribbean, and by resolution 1984/67 of 27 July 1984, the Economic Council decided to change its name to the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC); the Spanish acronym, CEPAL, remains unchanged.
ECLAC, which is headquartered in Santiago, Chile, is one of the five regional commissions of the United Nations. It was founded with the purpose of contributing to the economic development of Latin America, coordinating actions directed towards this end, and reinforcing economic ties among countries and with other nations of the world. The promotion of the region's social development was later included among its primary objectives.
In June 1951, the Commission established the ECLAC subregional headquarters in Mexico City, which serves the needs of the Central American subregion, and in December 1966, the ECLAC subregional headquarters for the Caribbean was founded in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. In addition, ECLAC maintains country offices in Buenos Aires, Brasilia, Montevideo and Bogotá, as well as a liaison office in Washington, D.C.
