The mission of the Academic board is to encourage the development of the academic, pedagogical and scientific activities of the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS).

The Academic Board assists CLAS in working with various local, regional, and national institutions to foster research, facilitate networking, and attract resources to support its mission within the University.

The CLAS Board of Advisors is composed of distinguished individuals from Czech government, similar centers, universities, and the community who have a strong interest in the Latin American region.
