Dialogues without Borders

The Research Center for the Americas (RCA) at the University of California, Santa Cruz, supports collaborative and interdisciplinary research on Latin America, migration, human rights, the arts, education, culture, labor, indigeneity, and the politics of California’s Latino and immigrant communities. Founded in 1992 and formerly known as the Chicano Latino Research Center, the RCA also hosts world-class scholars and sponsors initiatives between the campus and the community.

The current RCA Director's Initiatives includes the Human Rights Investigations Lab and Brazil Online.

The RCA is proud to sponsor a broad spectrum of events that are open to the public. For a listing of events, please check out News and Events.
