The Department of Chicano and Latino Studies (CHLS) recognizes that the results of the 2016 U.S. presidential election have reinvigorated our campus community to remain steadfast in our support of the educational aspirations and promise of our students at California State University, Long Beach. Our President-elect’s proposed campaign policies have the potential to separate families, injure communities, and place our immigrant communities at a heightened risk. 

The economic, political, and social resonance of such realities has inspired our department to reassure our students of our commitment to their educational, political, and social objectives. To that end, we will afford them an educational climate and accessible spaces that make it possible for them to pursue those goals in a humanely productive fashion.  We will continue to advocate for and assist students in their social justice efforts within the university campus and communities. In collaboration and in solidarity, our department reminds students that beyond our office hours and course offerings as open spaces to them, that the following institutional resources may also prove most helpful as we work in support of each other and together:
