Quiénes Somos

What is a Chicana? What is a Chicano? A Mexican-American who is impatient with injustice, a Hispanic who has realized that the success of the community means more than his or her personal success, a son or daughter of immigrants who understands that the "American Dream" works for no one until it works for all.

In 1973, the first Chicano Studies program at UCSD was created.  It was the result of many years of pressure from students who had participated in the major social movements of that time.  The university administration provided only minimal support to the program for over a decade and a half, and in 1989 it was folded into the Ethnic Studies program.  In the late 1990's, Chicano/a-Latino/a students, faculty and staff realized that Chicano/a Studies was still invisible at UCSD and a proposal was developed for a new program.  The result of a long tradition of student activism, the Chicano/a-Latino/a Arts & Humanities, CLAH, minor was created in 2002.
