Chicana and Chicano Studies Department - University of New Mexico


The Chicana and Chicano Studies Department at the University of New Mexico is an interdisciplinary program. The academic purpose of the department is to promote a critical understanding of Chicano/Hispano/Mexicano communities through teaching, research, and advocacy. Since our program resides at the flagship institution of the state that has the largest percentage of Hispanics in the country, this mission is integral to furthering the understanding of New Mexico’s present and the nation’s future.
