About Us


Since my first day in the classroom in 2010, I knew this department was the right place for me. As a professor, I get to teach, learn from, and be inspired by students who are not only brilliant, creative thinkers, but also deeply committed change agents intentionally seeking education to improve conditions for their families and communities. Our staff genuinely care about making students feel at home. Our faculty are nationally-renowned leaders in the study of Chicanas/os/xs, Latinas/os/xs, and Indigenous migrants from Latin America – uncovering inequalities, informing policy, and shining a light on these communities’ resistance, art, and history to inspire transformative change.
