Since its founding in 1969, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) has played a pivotal role in the development of scholarly research on the Chicano-Latino population, which is now the largest minority group in the United States. Our research mission is supported by five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public programs and community-based partnerships, and a competitive grants and fellowships program. The CSRC has received recognition from its peers and the community, including:
Award for Excellence in Diversity, College Art Association (2019)
Editor/Publisher Award, Before Columbus Foundation (2019)
Diversity Award, Society of American Archivists (2012)
Effective March 11, UCLA transitioned to remote learning platforms and work in order to curb the spread of COVID-19. The CSRC offices are closed to visitors, but we remain active via email, social media, and phone. For important updates about COVID-19 and its impact at UCLA, please visit ucla.in/coronavirus.
