Here at UCSB, we take pride in our strong commitment to the success of our Chicanx/Latinx communities. As a Hispanic Serving Institution, we continue to strive to provide our students with the essential tools and resources needed to accomplish great feats during and after their time at UCSB. Get involved with El Congreso, a Latinx activist organization, one of our many professional organizations like Los Ingenieros, or just hang out at El Centro where you can learn about these orgs and many more!

This community has helped me grow positively and I will forever remember the amazing times at UCSB.

Featured Event

Comunidad Latinx Graduación 2024

Saturday, June 15 | 4:00-8:00pm | Harder Stadium

CLG is a ceremony that celebrates the accomplishments of the UCSB Latinx community. As members of a marginalized community we believe that it is important to celebrate our diverse cultures at this university. We are a student led and funded organization that fundraises for the ceremony though various fundraising events with local businesses, connecting with sponsors and by administering member fees. The 2024 CLH Cabinet appreciates your support and we cannot wait to celebrate our community through this ceremony!

Point of Pride

El Centro

In 1969, the Chicano Coordinating Council on Higher Education met at UC Santa Barbara to draft El Plan de Santa Barbara, a document that served as the foundation for educational curriculum and community organizing across California. Another outcome was the formation of Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA).
