Important ongoing CSRC research projects include A Ver: Revisioning Art History, which is documenting and preserving the work of individual Latina/o artists, the Stratchwitz Frontera Collection of Mexican and Mexican American Recordings Digitization Project, and the Hate Speech in the Media Project. Additional research projects concern health care entitlements for Spanish-speaking Latinos; Latinos and social security/economic security; and L.A. Xicano, a revolutionary art history project that in 2011-12 resulted in four major exhibitions featuring over eighty Chicana and Chicano artists.
Each year the CSRC presents a one-day Education Summit that brings together scholars, educators, community representatives, policy makers, and students to explore viable policy recommendations and initiatives that can improve educational opportunity for Latina/o students.
The CSRC also hosts a number of archival projects.
The CSRC Press regularly publishes briefs and reports of current research supported by the CSRC.
