About the Chapter

NYS-MapActivated in 2014, the purpose of the Upstate New York Chapter is to advance the study of the Hispanic languages and literatures through the interaction of members through cultural and linguistic events at all levels of education and to support programs and activities in the teaching and learning of the Spanish and Portuguese languages and their respective cultures. The chapter covers the wide-ranging geographic area of upstate New York. Preliminary goals include providing membership with cultural activities, opportunities for language immersion, and the distribution of a newsletter.
