Your gift supports the UCLA Cesar E. Chavez Department in its mission of training new generations of scholars to research and analyze the life, history, and culture of Mexican-origin people within the United States, and of other Latino/a and indigenous populations in the Americas. By investing in the Department, UCLA's alumni, faculty and friends demonstrate confidence in the power of knowledge about our history.

The University of California faces new state-budget-driven challenges next year, but support from alumni and friends like you make a difference in the life of the Chávez Department, especially as we get ready to launch our M.A./Ph.D. Program—the second Chicana/o Studies PhD program in the U.C. System and the third of its kind in the world—slated to open its doors in Fall 2011.

Alumni interested in making a gift to the Department by endowing a scholarship,supporting faculty research or making a planned gift should contact Kim Morris in the UCLA Development Office at 310-825-1151.

Thank you for supporting the work and achievements of the UCLA Cesar E. Chavez Department.


Abel Valenzuela, Jr. Chair
