The mission of the National Latino Research Center (NLRC) at California State University
San Marcos is to promote scientific and applied research, training, and the exchange
of information that contribute to the knowledge and understanding of rapidly growing
U.S. Latino populations.
The NLRC's local and national projects explore topics such as cultural competency
in public agencies, migrant health, environmental justice, educational equity, civic
engagement, and community development.
Our team of students and community volunteers at NLRC collaborate with Feeding San Diego to increase access to healthy food for farmworkers and migrant families in North
