Latin@ Center

logo de latino center


Established in the fall of 2015, the Latin@/x Center at California State University San Marcos provides programming and services that are relevant and responsive to Latin@/x student needs.


We serve as resource to the campus community. We celebrate and enhance the understanding of our vast and extensive Latin@/x culture. 

The Latin@/x Center is grounded on community building standards deriving from “Familismo” principals and operates from a Latinx Critical Theoretical lens. We focus on Latin@/x student cultural empowerment by providing affirming and validating literature, artwork, and media within our space. We educate students and campus members about Latin@/x traditions, culture, and issues impacting the community. The center serves as a connection point to multiple internal and external networks aimed at providing systems of support for Latin@/x identifying students. These center standards foster positive transformational experiences and contribute to Latin@/x student success goals.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Vamos Cougars!
