About Mission

Founded in 1992, the RCA is a 30+ year multidisciplinary research unit at UC Santa Cruz that brings U.S. and international scholars and students together in the fields of Chicanx, Latinx, and Latin American studies broadly defined. We are the first in the UC system to put these fields in conversation that have a history of working apart. Learn More!
