I work with high net worth and institutional clients in the context of their equity and fixed income portfolios. Since joining Goldman, I have had the chance to work with Latin American clients from Mexico, Chile, El...

  • When Lisa Baldez joined Dartmouth’s government department a decade ago, the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL) was just forming—and Baldez, who officially took over as director of DCAL in November, thought she already knew how to teach.

    “Part of why I came to Dartmouth was because Dartmouth cares about teaching,” says Baldez, who chairs the...

  • My Dartmouth Latin American Studies degree has been the foundation of my professional life for 5 decades. The mixture of humanities and social science gave me the basis for re-inventing my interests throughout my career. After leaving Dartmouth (where I spent a summer in a rural Mexican village, a semester studying in Lima Peru and a summer interning at the Inter American development Bank), I directly entered a PhD Program in Sociology where my dissertation work focussed on development in...

  • Upon graduation from Dartmouth, I worked for several years in the field of public education, before making the transition to electoral campaigns, legislative advocacy, and public engagement. My work in Latino Studies and Latin American and Caribbean Studies has served me well professionally, and proven to be of tremendous personal benefit as well. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with majors, minors, fellows, and graduate-degree pursuing scholars, about the past, present, and future...

  • Negarra Kudumu '01 writes, "Since April of 2009 I have been living and working in the Netherlands at a research institute called HIIL (Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law). In a very basic way my LALACS major, coupled with studying Spanish and Portuguese, has equipped me with a broader tool kit for relating to and understanding the world. Because of LALACS's interdisciplinary nature, I often find myself drawing upon that knowledge base to see how well--or not--it applies to...

  • After graduating I got into the habit of uprooting my life every few years. After working as a development consultant for not for profits in New York City, I then spent two years in Mozambique as a organizational development adviser for local non-governmental agencies. Currently I live in Anchorage, Alaska and manage the largest homelessness shelter in the state. I would say that my LALACS degree oriented my life towards being able to better exam the social, political, and cultural currents...

  • My professors in the LALACS program always stressed the importance of asking better questions. They also encouraged me to be creative in how I set about answering them. Its been incredibly useful to keep in mind that sometimes the questions we ask, the things we worry about, the methods to our goals may be fundamentally disconnected to the reality we observe/experience. Its been useful in helping me make sense of the world around me as well as the work I that I do. Since graduating I have...
