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)
