The Latinx Research Center
The Latinx Research Center (LRC) was founded in its previous iteration as the Center for Latino Policy Research, in 1989. As of 2018, its mission has expanded as an interdisciplinary and transAmericas research center that produces scholarship and provides student and faculty research opportunities to address social, cultural, economic, and political inequality affecting the diverse Latinx population of the United States. As a campus and national research hub, the LRC also disseminates cutting edge research illuminating the valuable contributions of Latinxs to society. The history, condition, experiences, and future projections regarding the vast and growing U.S. Latinx community impacts not only Latinxs, but contributes to a stronger, richer nation built on knowledgeable respect for and engagement with ethnic and cultural differences.
We support the relevant research produced by UC Berkeley's leading Latinxs studies scholars through internal research projects, graduate and undergraduate student research and leadership opportunities, public programming that includes public policy papers, lectures by faculty and student researchers available on our YouTube channel, podcasts, Latinx art exhibitions and digital art exhibition catalogs, and through our new e-magazine, Revista N'oj, providing well-informed, accessible commentary regarding Latinxs in the United States and developments in Latin America, seen from U.S. Latinx transnational lens. Learn more about our numerous activities at lrc.berkeley.edu.
The LRC hosts top scholars from campus and across the nation, political and community leaders, poet laureates, distinguished artists, and provides a welcoming space for the campus and local community to meet, learn, and create impactful solutions together. We are proud to be a fundamental part of UC Berkeley's distinguished and ongoing history of visionary, democratic leadership in new ideas, research, and policy recommendations. Given the challenges facing our campus, our state, nation, and world, the Latinx Research Center's mission is more critical than ever. Your support will help us to continue to work to advance the important work of educating for respectful coexistence across the kinds of differences that have built our campus, state's and country's strengths and ongoing potential.
