The Department of Chicana/o Studies celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2009, yet continues to work from the premise set forth by Ernesto Galarza.  Originally founded to address the immediate needs of Chicana/o students at CSUN, the Department has grown and flourished because and in spite of the different times it has endured. From the political and cultural revolutionary renaissance of the 1960s-1970s, through the conservative and neo-liberal backlash of the 1980s-1990s, at the turn of the 21st Century, Chicana/o Studies at CSUN is now more than ever committed to contribute to the development of well rounded critical thinkers, and participants of, and contributors to society.
