Chicanx Latinx Student Center (CLSC)






Our Mission at the Chicanx Latinx Student Center is to promote academic success and achievement for all students especially those of Latin/Spanish ethnicity, culture, community, heritage and linguistic backgrounds. Therefore, the Center provides academic guidance, programming, professional services, and connections to promote the students’ academic success and personal development. We do this by creating a positive, safe, encouraging, nurturing and professional environment where students take on Personal Responsibility In Developing Excellence (PRIDE). To this end, the Center exists to serve as a support for all students and communities by providing the connections to foster a culturally relevant transition, adjustment, persistence, achievement, and graduation from Washington State University. 



  • Provide programs and services that improve the retention, achievement, and graduation of students.
  • Develop outreach programs designed to welcome and aid incoming students.
  • Embrace diversity to promote cultural awareness, self-determination and the understanding of others.
  • Build a community of support through social interaction among individuals, organizations, clubs, and social groups.
  • Maintain and enhance university-wide and community partnerships to promote student retention and graduation.


To Our Cougar Community

We hope your summer is going well during, and despite, this global pandemic. Our MSS team is hard at work, planning for the fall semester. Unfortunately, we will be doing this work virtually at the start of the Fall 2020 semester. We have decided to close our physical centers for the health and safety of both our students, staff, and the WSU-Pullman community. Our signature events, such as MSS Open House Conexion, and Fall Graduation Celebration will continue virtually. Our staff, including Student Mentors and Student Office Assistants, will be available virtually to answer your questions. We are sad that we cannot connect with you all in person but we will continue to build community in exciting new ways. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us using our staff information link. Our team will be reaching out to all of you as we organize and advertise various programming and learning opportunities to support retention. We thank you, we miss you, and we look forward to seeing you all soon. We invite you to also follow us on our MSS social media listed on this page for various information. 

Stay Safe and Healthy
