It is fall semester 2010 and we welcome everyone to the Department of Chicano Studies in Scott Hall on the East Bank. Whether you are new to campus or very familiar to campus and the University of MN, we invite you to stop by the office to meet our great staff and faculty, peruse our list of classes being offered or become involved in our many outreach programs and options.
This fall already has already and will continue to prove to be a very full and exciting time in Chicano Studies. Classes began September 7th and as a department, we are running 12 courses-most of which are full or close to full. Casa Sol, the Living Learning Community began it's 6th year with the biggest class ever and we continue to work with youth and families in the K-12 through our four community partners, in addition to our work with other Latino- centric groups and non-profits.
2010 recognizes the 100th Anniversary of the Mexican Revolution and the 200th Anniversary of Mexican Independence. While the work of Chicano Studies focuses on the lived reality and experiences of Chican@s and Latin@ in the US, certainly there is an intimate connection with Mexico and we are proud to partner with the Mexican Consulate for various activities and programs, including a joint Grito Para Educaccion.
