The Center for Mexican American Studies at The University of Texas at Arlington (CMAS) was founded in 1994 by a legislative mandate promoted by Mexican American members of the Texas Legislature and their supporters. CMAS is an academic unit in the Office of the Provost dedicated to advancing the study and understanding of Mexican American and other Latino populations in the United States. The Center’s mission is threefold:
Administer an 18-hour academic minor in Mexican American Studies and advise students interested in pursuing the minor.
Promote research and the recruitment, retention, and professional development of UTA faculty actively engaged in studies on Latino issues.
Serve as a bridge between UTA and the Latino community in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex through various service outreach activities.
