About Us

Since the creation of the Chicana/o Latina/o Student Center (CLSC) in the early 1970’s the core mission has been to promote self-determination for Chicana/o Latina/o Students at Washington State University; this core mission has continued to be refined and shaped into what the center is today. While there is a focus on our Latina/o students, the CLSC assists all WSU students, regardless of ethnicity, culture, community, heritage and linguistic background. This help is offered via culturally relevant services that coincide with the goals of the Office of Multicultural Student Services, meant to aid in the successful transition, adaptation, persistence, achievement and graduation of all our students. Therefore, with support of many WSU sister and partner programs, the Center is a strong community of Cougar support. Students at the CLSC receive academic advising, mentoring, tutoring, and are engaged in social and cultural programming, while simultaneously being encouraged to reach out to WSU’s resources all across campus. Our students also engage in intra-center cultural enrichment activities within the CUB fourth floor community, and the university as a whole. The CLSC is also very proud to be a place of not only academic and cultural support but also a space where student leaders, within the 19 active student organizations, share, lead and communicate their student voices.
