2015 Annual Report
LETTER FROM THE CHAIR
2015 was a year of notable accomplishments at Laspau. We completed significant projects that will expand our organizational and productive capacity. We also initiated celebrations of a Laspau milestone: our 50th anniversary. We carried out strategic planning and rebranding processes with important feedback and participation from our partners. Once again, we were inspired this year by the dedication and success of the scholars in the programs we manage. We must also raise a toast to each and every member of the Laspau staff, whose individual and team efforts contributed immeasurably to a successful 2015 on every level.
We also give deep thanks our many governmental and corporate sponsors throughout the Americas, without whose collaboration the Laspau mission could not be possible. In particular, we honor the 200+ top-tier universities throughout the United States and Canada whose generosity and open arms to Laspau grantees over the past 50 years have enabled Laspau to do what it does, and be what it is.
Finally, on the eve of this milestone anniversary, we give heartfelt thanks to Harvard University, whose inspiration gave birth to the Laspau idea in 1966 and whose counsel and stewardship over these five decades have steadfastly helped guide and shape our mission, values, and ideals.
Laspau looks forward eagerly to celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2016. As we reflect on our history over the past five decades, we also look to the possibilities for new initiatives that will respond to the ever-changing needs and priorities of the 34 countries within the Latin American and Caribbean regions we serve. Going forward, our efforts will focus on strengthening Laspau so that we can continue promoting quality and relevant higher education in the Americas for many decades to come.
