About the OEGE
The OEGE is made up of all graduate students of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies at the University of Florida. Our primary mission is to promote the language and cultures of Spain and Latin America throughout our community and to represent the graduate students of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. Our goals are to serve as a liaison between graduate students and faculty members in order to enhance and facilitate departmental communication.
Additionally, the organization promotes and provides a social outlet for graduate students interested in Spanish and Latin American cultures through academic and artistic events, including guest speakers on issues regarding Spain and Latin America. The organization also holds an annual research colloquium and other similar educational events throughout the year. The organization will also coordinate social events to build relationships within the Spanish and Portuguese graduate student community and the university at large.
