El Centro de la Raza upholds the legacy of the Chicano movement of the 1960’s. El Centro is committed not only to support the academic journey of our students, but also to serve as place to nurture cultura. Cultura represents an effort to reclaim and create social and economic justice for our students and communities by being a conduit for self-affirmation through poetry, danza, ceremonies, and other cultural expressions that define who we are. Our intent is not only to help our students navigate the intricate ways of the university and to serve as a support system, but to also create a beautiful space in which our students can explore and experience their own cultura, their sense of being, and their belonging to the larger world.
