The 1846-1848 war between the United States and Mexico ended with the ratification of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. As a result of this treaty, the Mexican American population was born. However, 150 years later, Mexican Americans still do not enjoy full participation in the United States.
The Mexican American Studies & Research Center (MASRC) works with community agencies in promoting leadership and empowerment of Mexican Americans. The Center achieves these goals through its applied research agenda, its publications, and the comprehensive curriculum it offers students. As an intellectual center, it disseminates information to a broad audience, including elected officials, educators, students, policy makers and other researchers.
