UMN Chicano/Latino Studies highlighted

Chicano/Latino Studies: A department engaged with the community

As part of Hispanic Heritage Month — which runs from September 15 through October 15 each year — we are highlighting the University of Minnesota's Department of Chicano Studies. The department was born in 1971, following a 1970 demonstration by Hispanic students, who demanded its creation so that courses on history and culture from a Chicano world view would be taught.
