Behner Stiefel Center for Brazilian Studies
The Behner Stiefel Center for Brazilian Studies, created in 2014, is focused on the interdisciplinary examination of globally relevant issues in Brazil, with an emphasis on social and environmental justice. The Center includes faculty from across the university, united by a shared passion for Brazil and dedicated to research and collaboration with Brazilian scholars. We educate a highly diverse group of students, as evidenced by SDSU’s designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution.
