Since 1970, the mission of the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) has been to serve Texas and the nation as a leader in the intellectual development of Mexican American studies. The establishment of CMAS represents an institutional recognition of the importance of the Mexican American people in the history of the United States.
CMAS accomplishes its mission by engaging in community outreach efforts throughout the academic year that include hosting various lecture series, organizing an extensive public programming calendar, and fostering a variety of community and research partnerships.
The Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies (MALS) will complement the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) and be housed in the College of Liberal Arts at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) will host El Mundo Zurdo at The University of Texas at Austin in May 2015.
