About Us

Since its founding in 1969, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) has established a national reputation for cutting-edge research that addresses the needs, impact, and contributions of the Chicano and Latino populations in the United States. Current CSRC research projects focus on public health, education, law, economic security, media impact, and the arts, while the CSRC grants, fellowships, and visiting scholars programs support research across all disciplines. In addition, we house and provide public access to the largest Chicano archival holdings in the state, run an award-winning academic press, curate groundbreaking exhibitions, and sponsor free public programs year-round. The CSRC's efforts represent a dynamic model for achieving the UCLA institutional priorities of academic excellence, civic engagement, and diversity. For more information, visit
