Here at El Centro Chicano we strive to foster a community of critically thinking, socially conscious Chicana/o and Latina/o leaders: providing personal, social and academic support through graduation and beyond.

In addition, El Centro Chicano challenges the USC community to become aware of Latina/o issues and the ethnic diversity represented within the Latina/o community (i.e. Central & South America, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico & Puerto Rico).

El Centro also offers student advocacy, personal support, assistance for Latina/o student groups, and transitional/beyond USC programming. El Centro programs range from new student symposiums fostering a smooth transition to USC life, to the annual Chicano/Latino Graduation Celebration giving students a cultural and unique way to graduate from USC.

We encourage you to be part of USC’s Comunidad and work with El Centro in serving the diverse Latina/o and USC Community. If you ever have any question, need help, want to create a club, want to see a particular event/speaker happen on campus, want to know where to find something or just need to talk, please drop by El Centro.
