ˇBienvenidos! Welcome to the Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC), a department within the Creighton University Global Engagement Office.



Creighton University has had a presence in the Dominican Republic for 45 years.  We are hosted by the Centro de Educacion para la Salud Integral (CESI), well-known by its English name, Misión ILAC, with whom we have a very close partnership. This partnership grew from efforts to provide immersive experiences in health services and has expanded to other initiatives including supporting a semester-long academic service learning program for undergraduate students, Encuentro Dominicano, facilitating service and immersion experiences for partner high schools, and assisting with surgical missions and medical rotations.
