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 U.S. Chicano-Latino population. Our research mission is supported by
five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public and academic programs, and community-based partnerships.
Effective March 11, 2020, UCLA transitioned to remote learning platforms and work in order to curb the spread of COVID-19. The CSRC remains active via email, social media, and phone. For important updates about COVID-19 and its impact at UCLA, please visit ucla.in/coronavirus
