About Mission

Founded in 1992, the RCA at UC Santa Cruz is the first research center in the UC system to put in conversation the historically disconnected fields of Chicanx/Latinx and Latin American studies. As a multidisciplinary research unit, we bring together U.S. and international scholars to advance cross-border research, and professionally mentor students to prepare them for future career success.
