As demonstrations in support of Black Lives Matter exploded across the country this past May, the editorial team at the CSRC concluded it is time to make a change.
On Wednesday, July 22, the CSRC co-hosted a virtual UCLA Medal ceremony honoring Esteban E. Torres. Watch the video on the UCLA YouTube channel.
In Spring 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic and a national uprising catalyzed by the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, UCLA faculty and administrative leadership of color joined together to call upon the UCLA Chancellor and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost to make firm commitments to supporting faculty and students of color.
The exhibition catalog La Raza, published by the CSRC Press, was awarded a gold medal in the category of U.S. History in the 2020 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPYs). The awards were announced May 6.
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. 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, 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

The CSRC is proud to be a part of the Institute of American Cultures. We actively collaborate with the Institute's three other ethnic studies research centers. Check out some of their groundbreaking projects:
