Bienvenidos a nuestra familia de UCR!
We celebrate the traditions of Chicano/Latino culture while sharing the spirit of La Raza with our campus and community. To our Chicano/Latino students, we are one big familia, and like a family, we fully support your academic, cultural, and social success.
If you ask our students about Chicano Student Programs, the first thing they will tell you is that we are one big family. Our caring staff supports UCR’s Chicano/Latino community with incredible programs and resources. Our faculty’s research and experiences speak to issues about La Raza, and provide priceless networking and mentorship opportunities. Our shared goals and values make the Common Ground Collective a strong branch of our family tree. Our student organizations are some of our most inspirational family members. Contact us any time. You are part of our family, too.
We create a positive environment for Chicano/Latino students at UCR by offering supportive services and programs that encourage academic success and retention. We provide service referral when necessary, and serve as a resource for advocacy as well.
We collaborate with other UCR departments with shared goals; encourage faculty and staff mentorship; reach out to our local community; and maintain a helpful campus, community and alumni network that help our students grow.
