About Mission

Founded in 1992, the Dolores Huerta Research Center for the Americas (Huerta Center) at UC Santa Cruz is the first research center in the UC system to put in conversation the historically disconnected fields of Chicanx/Latinx and Latin American studies. Named in honor of Dolores Huerta in 2022, the Huerta Center is a multidisciplinary research unit where we bring together U.S. and international scholars to advance cross-border research, and professionally mentor students to prepare them for future career success.
