CSUDH serves a region that includes a rich representation of Latinx cultures from the Mexico, Central America, and South America. As a Hispanic-Serving Institution, CSUDH attracts a student body that in Fall 2017 was 64% Hispanic or Latinx.

In this critical time, “¡Adelante! Latinx Activism in California” explored important moments of regional history, and embraced strengths that derive from diversity. In doing this work, CSUDH stood as a center of knowledge, learning, and service, to Latinx and all communities. Our theme year was designed to foster a deeper understanding of the Latinx communities that CSUDH serves for

  • students;
  • alumni; and
  • external communities, including civic and cultural leaders.

As a result of theme year activities, our campus communities were able to critically analyze important themes in our regional history and culture. As always, we seek to empower CSUDH communities, and build capacities for peace-building among all communities that are defined by heritage or national origin.

South Bay Service Area Opinion Survey: Issues of Interest to Latinx Communities
Immigration, health disparities, and other issues

Led by CSUDH’s Urban Community Research Center Director and Professor of Sociology Matt G. Mutchler and conducted by the CSU Fullerton Social Science Research Center, this scientific telephone survey sought the opinions of individuals in the communities surrounding CSUDH in the areas of immigration, health outcomes, bilingual public education, treatment of gay, lesbian and transgendered persons, and higher education. Interviews were conducted between November 20, 2017 and December 20, 2017, in both English and Spanish. A total of 384 survey responses were collected. Results are generally reliable to a 95% confidence level within a +/- 2.5% range. Smaller sub-groups will have larger margins of error.​ Results of the survey are available here.
