The Association brings together scholars, educators, public policy experts, community activists and students whose work focuses, at least partially, on Puerto Rico, Puerto Ricans in the United States, or both.

Some of our members work within specific disciplines but a large number are also engaged in thoroughly interdisciplinary research and teaching in fields such as Critical Legal Studies, Critical Race Studies, Environmental Studies, Film Studies, Gender and Sexuality, Public Health, Public Policy, Queer Studies, and Women Studies, among others.
