Established in 2021, the Cal State LA Chicanx and Latinx University Alumni Network (CLUAN) exists to cultivate, promote, and support an inclusive community of alumni with the collaboration of students, faculty, and staff to engage in activities that advance educational, personal, intellectual, and cultural development. These goals will be achieved through mentoring programs and services, networking opportunities, and financial initiatives that facilitate professional, social, and academic growth among the Chicanx/Latinx community.
- In 1968, Cal State LA was the first in the United States to create an academic field dedicated to Chicano Studies (formerly known as Mexican American Studies).
- We are the first public four-year institution on the west coast to qualify for full membership in the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU).
- Cal State LA is the first in the CSU to be designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI).
