According to the program's 2013 Fall newsletter, Africana and Latin American Studies (ALST), was established at Colgate University in 1983 as the Africana and Hispanic Studies Program under the leadership of Manning Marable. In 1991, "under the directorship of the late Roy Bryce-Laporte, the program was reorganized to permit two separate and distinct majors in Africana and Latin American studies ... Caribbean Studies was added as a minor in 1995." As of 2016, students can obtain a major or minor in ALST with a concentration in Africana studies, African American studies, Latin American studies, or Caribbean studies.
