Chicana/o Studies Majors Prepared to Shape the Future

Students Steeped in Community Service, Cultural Expression, Theory and Analysis Outreach Through Art

A highlight of the Chicana/o Studies Program is the Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer (TANA), based in Woodland, the county seat of Yolo Country about 15 miles from Davis.

A collaborative partnership between the UC Davis program and the greater Woodland community, TANA offers a silkscreen studio, Chicano/Latino arts exhibition space and a teaching center for the arts.
