Dime con quien andes y te diré quien eres. Tell me with whom you walk and I will tell you who you are. - Mexican proverb

The Chicana/o Latina/o Arts and Humanities (CLAH) program at the University of California, San Diego is an interdisciplinary field of study in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. CLAH brings students, staff, faculty, and community together in the scholarly examination of Chicana/o and Latina/o life, history, and culture. We offer an interdisciplinary minor which provides a broad introduction to Spanish-speaking communities in the United States and sponsor related events about art and politics. As Chicanas/os and Latinas/os continue to fuel seismic demographic shifts in the United States, CLAH explores their history, how they shape the present, and the ways they will transform the future.
