The Chicano-Riqueño Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program offering students an opportunity to study the cultural roots, the heritage, and the contemporary social framework of the Chicano, the Puerto Rican, and the other Spanish-speaking peoples of the United States.

The program encourages a U.S. Latino focus within the Latin American studies minor or certificate, and its faculty sponsors courses, symposia, guest lectures, poetry readings, and research on U.S. Hispanics in the fields of anthropology, bilingual education, folklore, history, language, and literature. The program publishes an occasional series of scholarly monographs on literature, language, and culture. It helps support Chiricú, a literary magazine, and helped found Third Woman, a journal of women writers; it also promotes musical performances, art exhibits, and readings of Chicano and Puerto Rican works.
